May 18, 2023 — (Vancouver, BC) good natured Products Inc. (the “Company” or “good natured®”) (TSX-V: GDNP) (OTCQX: GDNPF), a North American leader in plant-based products, today announced that it has signed a commercial contract with a regional US snack food producer that distributes across several prominent Texas retailers. The contract outlines a two-year agreement whereby good natured® will supply packaging based on the Company’s proprietary GoodGuardTM tamper-evident design. The packaging will be produced at the Company’s Houston, Texas facility using a customized Bio-PET formulation that is curbside recyclable alongside traditional petroleum-based PET, rPET or PCR packaging. Revenue of approximately USD $1.2 million is anticipated in the first year, with the first shipment to the customer expected in Q3 2023.
“This project combines many elements of why we believe good natured® is unique in the market and what’s possible with the increased scale of our engineering and biomanufacturing capabilities,” said Paul Antoniadis, CEO of good natured®. “We collaborated closely with this purpose-driven organization in the local community of our Houston facility to build on our Canadian-made GoodGuardTM tamper-evident innovation and custom-fit a package design uniquely for their business needs. It’s a testament to the robust value proposition we’re taking to market, as well as the resilient demand for sustainable packaging despite volatile macroeconomic conditions being faced in more commoditized markets.”
