CALGARY, Nov. 26, 2018 /CNW/ – Gabriella’s Kitchen Inc. (“GABY” or the “Company”) (CSE: GABY), an innovative and leading-edge cannabis wellness company, is pleased to announce the appointment of Maureen Putman as a Special Advisor to the Company.  Maureen is the former President of The Grocery and Snacks Division of The Hain Celestial Group, Inc. (NASDAQ:  HAIN) and has also held the position of Chief Innovation Officer.  Maureen will contribute her skills and expertise to the development and achievement of GABY’s vision to penetrate and lead the mainstream market as a trusted cannabis wellness company. Maureen is particularly focussed on developing and bringing CBD-infused products to the mainstream and natural channels.

“As an innovator in the natural and organic product sector, Maureen’s strategic insights and extensive experience will contribute significantly to GABY’s continued growth and evolution,” said Margot Micallef, founder and CEO of Gabriella’s Kitchen. “As a pioneer in the health and wellness industry and with her history in bringing organic products to consumers two decades ago when organic was at its infancy, Maureen will provide significant guidance for positioning and launching GABY’s CBD wellness products into the mainstream.”

Maureen’s prior experience, joining Hain as a start up and significantly contributing to its growth to over $2.5 billion, positions her well to help guide GABY to its projected growth targets.  Further, as GABY continues to expand, Maureen’s knowledge and experience building brands from scratch to category leaders is an incredible value for GABY. In addition, Maureen’s hands-on experience working with key retailers in the US including Kroger, Walmart, Whole Foods, Target, Safeway and Wegmans will assist GABY as it continues to grow its presence in the consumer market with its full range of health and wellness products.

“I am pleased to join Gabriella’s Kitchen,” stated Ms. Putman.  “The responsible introduction of cannabinoids in food and personal care products is important for consumers seeking their benefits,” she continued.  “In addition, it is critical to expand the appeal of these products to key market segments ahead of competition by using our core competencies in R&D and manufacturing to add value and to communicate the benefits of GABY’s products for long-term loyalty,” she added.  “I’m also looking forward to working with Margot and with Mara Gordon, whose background as a pioneer in understanding the health attributes of various cannabinoids elevates the Company’s ability to create high-quality wellness products.” she concluded.

GABY’s alto™ and Aunt Zelda’s™ cannabis based and infused products are currently in licensed retail locations throughout California.

About Gabriella’s Kitchen

Gabriella’s Kitchen (GABY) is a pure-play cannabis wellness company holding a manufacturing and a distribution license issued by the California Bureau of Cannabis Control.  With these licenses and with its existing infrastructure of major retailers and an extensive broker and distribution network, GABY is positioned to service both mainstream grocery with CBD infused products, and licensed cannabis retailers with CBD and THC-infused products throughout Canada and the United States. The Company also has over 25 non-infused products available in more than 3,400 major retail stores across the U.S. and Canada.

Sisters Margot and Gabriella co-founded GABY to bring high quality, delicious, healthy superfoods to the market. The desire to create the all-encompassing wellness company came after Gabriella received a dire cancer diagnosis which spurred the sisters to prolong Gabriella’s life through a holistic approach to health. GABY directly and through The Oil Plant now offers a diverse range of products that cater to a variety of dietary and health concerns. Although Gabriella ultimately passed away from her illness, she lived exponentially longer than doctors predicted. Her memory and passion live on through GABY’s mission: to empower people to live healthy lives without compromise.
