Naturally Splendid Forms Strategic Alliance With Nature's Health Products Canada Corp. to Market HempOmega™ Globally

BURNABY, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - Jan. 6, 2015) - Naturally Splendid Enterprises ("Naturally Splendid" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:NSP)(OTCQB:NSPDF)(FRANKFURT:50N) is pleased to announce it has signed a strategic alliance with Nature's Health Products Canada Corp. ("NHPCC"), a member of the POS Group of Companies based in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, to capitalize on immediate opportunities to sell bulk volumes of HempOmega™ to selected clients. Potential markets for HempOmega™ include products for human consumption, as well as commercial poultry and beef feed ingredients and pet food ingredients.

The first agreement executed between the two companies is a three (3) year Contractor Agreement. The Contractor Agreement outlines the following:

NHPCC will take commercially reasonable measures to:

  1. identify opportunities for Naturally Splendid to sell HempOmega™; and
  2. introduce Naturally Splendid to potential purchasers of HempOmega™ in order to enable the Company to negotiate and conclude sales agreements with such purchasers.

POS Bio-Sciences, an NHPCC affiliate and contract R&D / custom manufacturer has been working with Boreal Technologies for over eighteen (18) months fine tuning the manufacturing process for HempOmega™ to meet Naturally Splendid's strict requirements.

POS Bio-Sciences CEO Mr. Dale Kelly advises, "During the product development process, it became clear that HempOmega™ was a unique business proposition. We believe it is ideal for several of our existing clients and allows POS to explore new markets and opportunities created with this omega technology. We have an intimate knowledge of the science of HempOmega™ and the base technology that forms the foundation of all the omega offerings available through Naturally Splendid. We are confident the synergy between Naturally Splendid, Boreal Technologies and our company will create significant revenue opportunities in 2015. We have already identified prospects in the animal feed and pet food sectors who have expressed interest in HempOmega™."

Naturally Splendid CEO Craig Goodwin states, "The strategic alliance with POS has accelerated the opportunity to present HempOmega™ to a wide range of clients, globally, without incurring significant capital costs for manufacturing infrastructure, or the delay in time that constructing such a facility would take. With this agreement in place, Naturally Splendid has entered the lucrative $35 Billion annually omega market."
