“We have continued to make progress with our Business Transformation Plan through the first quarter of this year despite the ongoing impact of the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Dr. Arup Sen, Chief Executive Officer of Sproutly. “We are now able to leverage the success of Infusion BioSciences Inc. who has launched beverages using hemp Infuz2O in the US market with Kalo sparkling beverage and RI JUICE fresh fruit juices, to focus on using cannabis Infuz2O and BioNatural oils in unique Cannabis 2.0 products in Canada followed by other international markets.”
