Plandaí Biotechnology, Inc. ( OTCQB : PLPL ) (“Plandaí” or “the Company”), producer of the highly bioavailable Phytofare® catechin complex, announced today that it has executed an agreement with Cambridge Commodities Ltd. to become the exclusive Phytofare® distributor for the United Kingdom and all of Europe. Based in England, Cambridge Commodities specializes in supplying nutritional ingredients and finished products to the sports nutrition, health and well-being, pet and equine, and food industries.
Under the terms of the agreement, Cambridge Commodities will be required to meet specific quarterly sales goals to retain its exclusive distributor status with the initial quotas being established after a short ramp-up period.
Cambridge Commodities requires all suppliers to complete a verification process consisting of a meticulous questionnaire and thorough sampling of the material before approval. Their technical team, which includes nine professional lead auditors, travel to all parts of the world to ensure products meet all regulatory and quality requirements, and that those products adhere to environmental and social responsibility policies.
Callum Cottrell-Duffield, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Plandaí Biotechnology, commented, “Cambridge Commodities has been a Plandaí customer for over a year, so they are very familiar with Phytofare®. When the opportunity for a new distributor opened up in the European territory, we all agreed that it would be a perfect partnership. Cambridge has excellent contacts throughout Europe, experienced sales reps, and a great training program. We’re confident that they will easily meet and exceed their sales quota and we look forward to working with them.”
