While the world deals with the impacts of COVID-19, Avricore Health has utilized its network of suppliers and customers and Health Canada Licences to drive interim revenues.
VANCOUVER, British Columbia, June 29, 2020 — Avricore Health (TSXV: AVCR) like so many
other business, has faced both challenges and opportunities over the past several weeks. Thankfully, we’ve not had any team members sick, however, one close partner did spend time in hospital, bringing this health crisis close to home.
That instance, along with the regular reporting of shortages of critical supplies inspired our team to look for ways to help by supplying Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) to the public and private sector. We have taken the initiative to secure high-quality hand sanitizer for the retail sector.
Avricore Health successfully received a Natural Product Number (NPN) and Site Licence (SL) for Clean Hands Hand Sanitizer, qualifying it for import into Canada. Our initial test order is currently being shipped. First revenues for this product line are expected in early August. “Our focus has continued to be on our core mission of expanding the high quality point-of-care testing our HealthTabTM platform offers.” Said Hector Bremner, CEO. “However, we have taken a prudent approach, utilizing strategies to minimize risk, and to explore alternate revenue streams which will allow us to diversify during this challenging time.”
The Company has continued to make strides in advancing the Company’s core offering, HealthTabTM, utilizing this time to enhance the platform and further develop its capabilities. The current approach of generating new revenue streams complements this work by generating working capital and revenues.
