Yield Growth Announces First Hemp Product Passes EU Compliance Review and may Now be Sold in the European Market
Vancouver, B.C. – July 2, 2019 –– The Yield Growth Corp. (CSE:BOSS) (OTCQB:BOSQF) (Frankfurt: YG3) is pleased to announce that its Urban Juve Anti-Aging Serum can now be sold in the European market. A Compliance Certificate has been issued by Biorius, who is acting as Urban Juve’s Responsible Person in Europe.
Pursuant to EU regulations, Yield Growth retrained Biorius to act as its Responsible Person for Urban Juve, Yield Growth’s wholly owned subsidiary that formulates luxury hemp-based skincare products. In order to sell products in the European Union, the Responsible Person must first issue a compliance certificate for each product. After compliance review of each ingredient in the Anti-Aging Serum, including Urban Juve’s proprietary hemp root oil, Biorius issued a certificate of compliance, confirming that Urban Juve Anti-Aging Serum can now be sold in the European Market.
“This certificate of compliance is a crucial last step towards distribution in European markets,” says Penny Green, CEO of Yield Growth. “We’re very much looking forward to introducing high-quality hemp-powered cosmetics to a new consumer base in the European Union.”
As previously announced, Yield Growth has already signed a letter of intent with Melorganics Hellas, who will act as the exclusive retail distributor and non-exclusive e-commerce distributor for Urban Juve products in Greece and Cyprus. And as proposed legislation across the European Union continues to bring cannabis closer to the mainstream, high-end cannabis products are gaining in popularity. With a total population over 508 million, the EU represents massive market potential for Urban Juve products. Urban Juve is seeking to obtain compliance certificates for sale in the EU of all 11 of its products currently in the market. Sales of Urban Juve products in Europe are expected to commence in the fall.
