Distribution agreement with Styrian Gold B.C. Inc.
Vergence has reached a global distribution agreement with Styrian Gold B.C. Inc., makers of the award-winning, 100-per-cent-pure and unrefined Styrian Gold Pumpkin Seed Oil.
Styrian Gold Pumpkin Seed Oil delivers healthy anti-oxidants, vitamins and minerals vital for bodily functions. Consumption of the oil helps to aid the liver, bladder, urinary tract and prostate, as well as having anti-inflammatory, anti-parasitic and anti-diabetic benefits. Along with the oils, Styrian Gold also sells seeds and protein powder that it imports directly from an established and reputable oil pressing company in Styria.
Vergence will use its distribution and marketing channels to properly spread Styrian Gold products to global markets and is proud to incorporate the line in its portfolio of products.
Distribution agreement with Cascadia Soap Company
Vergence has reached a major North American distribution agreement with Cascadia Soap Company, makers of natural skin care products under the same brand name.
Cascadia's soaps, remedies and infusions are made using classic artisan methods used for generations in the south of France. Along with all-natural ingredients such as rose hips and dandelions to make the required salves and balms, Cascadia's founder Joel Morassutti developed a technique to incorporate goat milk in the production of the company's rich, long-lasting and moisturizing cleansing bars. Goat milk is used to increase the health benefits of the milk's liposomes in the soap.
Vergence has already listed the Cascadia Soaps best sellers on its new website and is set to begin working on global distribution with partnered distributors.
Distribution agreement with Naturally Canadian Superfoods
Vergence has signed a global distribution deal with Naturally Canadian Superfoods, direct importers, distributors and brokers of several products including Real Aloe, Maui Vera and the hemp superfood line Planet Hemp.
"Key to the deal is the potential to co-develop products with Naturally Canadian Superfoods, through our subsidiary, Northern Vine," said Mr. Abenante. "We believe there is major potential for synergistic product lines still to be developed between Northern Vine and our new partners, through enhancement of formulas with the medical benefits of CBD oils."
Naturally Canadian Superfoods' product lines include natural and organic aloe vera sun care and lotion product lines Real Aloe and Maui Vera, as well as hemp superfood line Planet Hemp, a natural buckwheat seaweed product line, a spice line from India and an organic garden hose line, among other products.
Distribution agreement with Smartpep Canada Biological Tech (doing business as Natrihealth)
Vergence has signed a global distribution agreement with Smartpep Canada Biological Tech for the Natrihealth brand of collagen supplements. Smartpep brings with it previously forged partnerships in North America, Asia, Japan, Korea and Hong Kong among its markets, and boasts only the best, high-quality ingredients in its products.
The Natrihealth brand produces several collagen supplements, utilizing tripeptide technology. Unlike most collagen supplements on the market which are mass produced cheaply using beef and poultry, Natrihealth has focused on a higher-quality fish-based formula.
"We are adding new brands to the website every week," adds Andrea Bates, chief operating officer of Vergence Naturals, "and we are very excited about the development of our own high end Vergence product lines. For example, we are currently working on a line of premium wild B.C. honeys, a luxury all natural, organic plant based cosmetic line and a CBD sunscreen which is being developed by our lab, Northern Vines."
