Dec. 12, 2017 – Elev8 Brands, Inc. (OTC Pink: VATE), a holding company focused on the commercial development of hemp and CBD-based products including hemp coffee, tea, and E-juices, which target the health and wellness markets, announces that they are now working with an Orlando, Florida based coffee roaster.
Elev8 Hemp aims to improve efficiency and in doing so has decided to bring on a new local roaster. New Florida-based roaster has significantly decreased lead time on new inventory as well as reduced cost on shipping, thereby markedly increasing profit margins. Elev8 has worked closely with roaster in developing new packaging and labeling to better fit traditional brick and mortar.
CEO of Elev8 Hemp, Ryan Medico, stated, “I couldn’t be more excited to have a more hands on feel, working with a roaster on the local level. The new packaging and labeling stands out amongst other coffees which distinctly brings attention to our premium hemp brand. This puts us in an excellent position through the holidays as we are significantly expanding our store locations.”
After helping secure a local roaster, Elev8 Hemp, LLC has officially hired Robert Clark, CEO of Kona Gold Solutions, Inc (OTC PINK: KGKG), as their new President. This was a strategic move as Ryan Medico and Robert Clark have had a strong working relationship for the past several years.
Robert Clark said, “This is an exciting time for Elev8 Brands and I am grateful to be afforded the opportunity in working with Mr. Medico in taking the company to the next level. For the past several months, I have been working closely with Mr. Medico to implement strategic changes and expand Elev8’s market presence and will continue to do so as the President. Our team is poised to make Elev8 a leader in their respective categories.”
