VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA / October 5, 2015 - Naturally Splendid Enterprises Ltd. (the "Company") (FRANKFURT:50N) ($NSP:CA) ($NSPDF) is pleased to announce their 100% owned pet care retail line, PawsitiveFXTM is to be distributed in the US through Coast 2 Coast Wholesale Pet Products. The Garden Grove, California based company is a well-established distributor serving over 1000 stores across the United States including PetSense and Krisers outlets. The arrangement is non-exclusive and was reached largely as a result of the exposure gained from the recently attended, US-based, SuperZoo trade show in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Kurt Hansen, CEO of Coast 2 Coast said, “We recognize the PawsitiveFXTM line as a premium product. There is an excitement in the market about how effective these products are and Coast 2 Coast is very happy to be carrying the brand into the US. We look forward to contributing to the success of the PawsitiveFXTM line.”
Naturally Splendid will use this relationship as a stepping stone into the $60 Billion a year US pet products market and is intending to supplement this relationship with more similar arrangements over the coming months. According to the American Pet Product Association (APPA), “an overall rise in the number of pets in the US and increased spending per pet are the main factors that will contribute to the pet’s industry growth in the years ahead. Even with the overall economic recovery taking longer than expected, annual revenue growth in pet products and services is anticipated to clock in at some 4.4% through 2016 (one of the few industries that can say so). As the recovery takes hold, household disposable income will rise even faster, and spending on pets will pick up even more”.
Andy Birchall, Brand Manager for the PawsitiveFXTM line said, “The PawsitiveFXTM line is generating a lot of interest on both sides of the US/Canada border. US distribution is a hugely important piece of our strategic planning. Pet owners today are more educated than ever before in how to care for their animals, and less willing to use inferior products where their well-being is concerned. As a result, consumer spend in the pet healthcare and grooming sectors is growing. Our Happy SnoutsTM, Happy PawsTM and Strong PawsTM balms are superior products in their sector, so PawsitiveFXTM is ideally positioned to offer the high quality and effective topical products consumers expect. Coast 2 Coast has an impressive reach and reputation in the US and will provide PawsitiveFXTM with the perfect platform from which to launch our products into the market.”
