TORONTO and MONTEVIDEO, Uruguay, Aug. 13, 2019 /CNW/ – PharmaCielo Ltd. (“PharmaCielo” or the “Company“) (TSXV:PCLO, OTC:PHCEF), the Canadian parent of Colombia’s premier cultivator and producer of medicinal-grade cannabis oil, PharmaCielo Colombia Holdings S.A.S., announced it has signed a sales agreement with Uruguay-based Laboratorios Adler (“Adler”). According to the agreement, PharmaCielo will provide Adler with bulk CBD extracts, bulk and bottled CBD oils and veterinary products that will be sold by Adler in Uruguay, Paraguay, Bolivia and Southern Brazil.
The four-and-a-half-year agreement with option for renewal signals PharmaCielo’s foray into the high-growth veterinary CBD treatment and wellness market. This is also the first collaboration between PharmaCielo and Creso Pharma that includes sub-contracting to Creso the responsibility for manufacture and supply of Creso’s veterinary feed products, anibidiol® 2.5 and anibidiol® 8, with export approval received from the Swiss Cantonal regulator.
“This exciting entry into the animal health marketplace through the agreement with Adler is an example of PharmaCielo executing on its strategic objectives to supply both bulk oil and proprietary products to customers using established large chain distributors,” said David Attard, CEO with PharmaCielo Ltd. “Including Creso Pharma’s animal health products also demonstrates both the mutual strategic value of our Creso acquisition proposal, which will be fully realized upon completion of the transaction, and the value of branded, fully manufactured product to provide enhanced margin opportunity. We are thrilled about the potential this agreement brings to all parties, and we look forward to working with our Latin American and European partners.”
A manufacturer and importer of products for animal treatment, Laboratorios Adler services a wide range of customers from pet shops to veterinary clinics and wholesale distributors of veterinary products. The CBD-based products that Adler will distribute in its area are designed for trauma pain and cancer-related pain treatment for domestic and large animals.
“We are seeing increased demand for CBD-based veterinary products across all our markets as customers look for natural solutions to address pain, stress and a variety of other ailments in both domestic and large animals,” said Adriana Adler, Chief Financial Officer with Laboratories Adler S.A. “Partnering with PharmaCielo gives us an incredible advantage in this rapidly developing category. Creso Pharma’s anibidiol® line of products, targeting stress, behavioral problems and chronic pain, along with PharmaCielo’s CBD isolate, among the purest and highest quality we’ve seen, make a great addition to our product portfolio.”
Development of the sales and distribution agreement was initiated in collaboration with Medara S.A., a Uruguay-based company that acts as PharmaCielo’s representative in several Latin American countries and is responsible for cultivating and maintaining strong channel relationships with local manufacturers, distributors and wholesalers as well as supporting market growth in the region.
PharmaCielo initiatives for distribution of its CBD products in expanded markets as identified in the agreement with Adler have been shared with TSXV for review as agreed.
