ParcelPal Signs Cannabis Distribution Agreement with Kiaro

Vancouver, BC – March 14, 2019 – ParcelPal Technology Inc., (CSE: PKG) (OTCPK: PTNYF) (FSE: PT0) (“ParcelPal” or the “Company”) – is pleased to announce it’s signed a cannabis distribution agreement with Kiaro, a Vancouver based cannabis retailer.

 

Further to ParcelPal’s cannabis strategy announced on September 13, 2018: (https://www.stockwatch.com/News/Search.aspx?wire=0&symbolchanges=Y&symbol=PKG&region=C), the Company has completed an additional cannabis distribution agreement with Kiaro for the delivery of cannabis products through Kiaro’s physical and digital retail channels. The initiative will consist of:

 

  • Distribution: ParcelPal and Kiaro will jointly develop an optimal roadmap for the distribution of adult use cannabis, ultimately creating the ‘Amazon Effect’ within the cannabis industry.
  • Accessibility: The companies will integrate their technology platform to enhance the user experience and improve product accessibility.
  • Compliance: All cannabis products delivered will be within parameters set by all the relevant regulatory bodies.
  • Safety: Both companies are dedicated to socially responsible cannabis retail and, by enabling cannabis delivery within the hour, hope to deter cannabis impaired driving.

 

This marks the Company’s second strategic partnership to manage cannabis deliveries through the omnichannel platforms of Canadian retailers. Previously ParcelPal announced a similar agreement with Choom Holdings: https://www.newswire.ca/news-releases/parcelpal-signs-agreement-for-marijuana-distribution-with-choom-holdings-inc-694498251.html

 

President and CEO Kelly Abbott States, “We are extremely excited to sign a distribution agreement with Kiaro and we will immediately begin planning and executing for all last mile operations. Our objective is to become the Uber of cannabis in Canada and this takes us one step closer to our goal.” Abbott continues, “Cannabis delivery is expensive and often through antiquated courier services – with consumers waiting over a week to receive their items. With ParcelPal, customers will receive their cannabis products safely within an hour. Our technology enables seamless integration with any cannabis retail outlet or eCommerce platform.”

 

President and CEO of Kiaro, Daniel Petrov states, “The distribution partnership with ParcelPal illustrates our ongoing commitment to normalize cannabis use, by improving product accessibility. Cannabis can enhance life enjoyment, when used responsibly, and the agreement enables us to support more Canadians in this pursuit. By expediting cannabis delivery, we hope to legitimize the industry and encourage cannabis curiosity, exploration and education.”

 

Customers who order cannabis or alcohol through the ParcelPal platform will be required to upload and verify their identities. Users that are under the age within their jurisdictions will not be allowed into this vertical on the application. The identity verification system ensures that the person is of age and that the identity is in fact real, and it is checked twice – once before and once upon delivery. Consumers who order product will have to be the person to receive the order. ParcelPal’s technology complies with all local, provincial and federal laws.
