"We are very pleased to announce over $6,500,000 in revenue up from $3,500,000 last year. Our team has continued to work very hard on customer acquisition and expansion. It can take months, even years, to gain entry to large retail accounts, but thankfully these time commitments have paid off for our team and we are now shipping to some of the largest retailers in North American on a weekly basis. The market conditions continue to be very favorable as people increasingly seek to avoid sugar, high fructose corn syrup, and artificial sweeteners. While we are proud of our accomplishments, our strong team has continued to execute and we expect 2014 to be another year of growth in the Company's sales," commented Andrew Reid, CEO of Xylitol Canada.
