True Leaf Medicine International, symbol MJ on the Canadian Securities Exchange, has begun trial runs for its hemp-based pet chews in preparation for a fall launch to the specialty natural pet product industry.

The company is entering the $60 billion pet industry with a line of hemp focused pet chews and supplements marketed through natural pet health and veterinary channels in Canada and the US.

Unlike fish oil, hemp seed oil contains the perfect ratio of Omega-6 to Omega-3 fatty acids.

A good balance of these Omega oils is critical to your dog’s health because they work synergistically in the body.

Darcy Bomford, CEO stated: “We’ve been working on some very innovative manufacturing techniques that will be a game-changer in this category and the initial trials have exceeded our expectations.”

True Leaf has contracted with CenterPoint Warehousing in Kansas City, Missouri to handle the company’s exclusive order fulfillment and distribution.

CenterPoint has provided warehousing, logistics, order-fulfillment and distribution services to the pet products industry for more than 15 years.

The company occupies just over 350,000 sq. ft. in an underground USDA and FDA inspected warehouse facility that is certified food grade and meets all industry standards.

Joe Fitzgerald, CenterPoint CEO stated: ”The True Leaf team has a keen eye for up-and-coming niche areas in the natural pet product market. We look forward to working with them to ensure they can
service their customers efficiently and achieve success in this market.”

These two milestones align with the company’s strategy to build a scalable, product-to-market platform that can meet the expected demands of the North American market.

True Leaf has also filed an application under Health Canada’s Marihuana for Medicinal Purposes Regulations to become a Canadian licensed producer.

It has passed through the preliminary and enhanced screening process of Health Canada’s review and is currently awaiting a ‘pre-license inspection’ approval.

True Leaf’s CEO, Darcy Bomford, who brings 30 years’ experience in the pet nutrition market, has partnered with BC Premier Mike Harcourt, who as Chairman, brings strong community and political relationships to the table.
