2018 Operational Overview
NutraLife’s manufacturing facility has been registered with the Food and Drug Administration and its manufacturing facility has operated in accordance with the Good Manufacturing Processes Standard (GMP) for more than five years. The Company’s products are tested by its in-house laboratory chemists for strength, purity and contaminants such as heavy metals, pesticides, and solvents. The Company offers thirteen (13) different core formulations which it modifies to meet the specifications of its private label customers. NutraLife BioSciences provides approximately 50 different variations of its core formulations. The Company’s private label products include CBD-infused oral sprays, tinctures, pet drops, pain balms, and face creams, and nutraceutical oral spray products for sleep support and weight loss packaged under the customer’s brand names.
In April 2017, the Company secured a 20,000 square foot manufacturing facility, which is being custom built to accommodate high-speed high capacity manufacturing of the Company’s products. The Company expects the build-out to be complete and production to begin this summer. The facility will provide more than 9,000 square feet of manufacturing with a total of 17,000 square feet of processing space to meet the increased demand for the Company’s products and services.
The Company recently established its wholly owned subsidiaries which are now engaged in operations:
- Precision Analytic Testing, LLC, a Florida limited liability company (“PAT”) formed on May 11, 2017
- NutraDerma Technologies, Inc, (“NutraDerma”) a Florida corporation formed on January 28, 2019
- PhytoChem Technologies, Inc., a Florida corporation (“PhytoChem”) formed on February 4, 2019
In November of 2018, PAT began providing bulk material analytical, identity, potency and purity testing of raw industrial hemp.
In December of 2018, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration completed an evaluation of three generally recognized as safe (GRAS) notices for hemp seed derived food ingredients. The FDA stated that hulled hemp seed (GRN765), hemp seed protein powder (GRN771), and hemp seed oil (GRN778) are GRAS under their intended conditions of use. Our CBD products are made from seeds and mature stalks of hemp and contain only trace amounts of THC, we believe they qualify as GRAS products.
In January of 2019, NutraDerma acquired the patent for a natural dermal skin patch that is designed to prevent mosquito and other insect bites. We recently secured manufacturing through a third party and we expect to launch the product in time for the 2019 mosquito season. We have secured production and are in the process of conducting a research study for efficacy. We are also exploring international distribution of the product.
In April of 2019, the Company completed development of its PCR Derma Patch. The PCR Derma Patch delivers 40 mg of Phytocannabinoid rich hemp extract that can last up to four days.
In March of 2019, the Company licensed its technology for a unique system for pharmaceutical grade delivery of testosterone into the human body to a licensed pharmacist, Orlando Pharmacy. The Company expects the first pharmaceutical products using its technology to be available within 30 days.
In March of 2019, we received two licenses from the Wisconsin Department of Agriculture to grow and process industrial hemp within the state. The Company plans to develop efficient, cost reducing growing systems and techniques along with processing technologies for industrial hemp and other botanicals.
In January, the Company completed development of its branded Micro Twist Shots. The products will be sold under the Company’s NutraHempCBD brand. The Company plans to launch the products before the end of April 2019. Micro Twist Shots provide a single dose of the Company’s 5 signature daily health and wellness formulations that include CBD.
We intend to grow our business by pursuing the following strategies:
- We plan to continue to brand ourselves as a High-Quality GMP Compliant manufacturer of industrial hemp derived CBD products. Many manufacturers of CBD based products do not operate in compliance with GMP standards. All of our CBD products are tested at multiple stages of the production process to ensure product quality and a THC content of less than 0.3%.
- We will seek to increase sales to our existing customers by offering additional products. Certain customers of ours began their relationship with us by purchasing only one of our products. Since these initial purchases, we have been able to expand our sales to such customers by offering multiple newly developed high-quality effective products. This strategy has enabled us to expand our product lines and sales to our new and existing customers. Our range of products enables us to pursue many cross-selling opportunities.
- We seek to increase sales to customers by offering products in categories outside of our traditional product offerings. For example, in November of 2018, through our wholly owned subsidiary PAT, we began providing bulk material analytical, identity, potency and purity testing of raw hemp. In the first quarter of 2019, we took the first steps to commercialize a patented all natural dermal skin patch that prevents mosquito and other insect bites. Through our wholly owned subsidiary PhytoChem, we plan to provide hemp cultivation and raw bulk material extraction and processing starting with our licenses in the state of Wisconsin.
- We plan to leverage our sales, reputation for quality all natural products to expand our customer base to other private label customers within the life sciences, CBD and Nutraceutical markets.
