Verus Signs Distribution Agreement in Florida

The news about a distribution agreement for the state of Florida was a significant development for the company since the state remains one of the biggest markets for cannabis products at this point. Stepping into the market could well prove to be a significant long-term boost for the joint venture.

The company announced yesterday that it had been successful in signing its very first distribution agreement for the Florida market for the products that belong to its joint venture with Fjord.

While it was a major announcement in its own right, it is also necessary to mention that Verus International also made another major announcement yesterday. It added that the range of products which are now on offer from the joint venture had also been expanded considerably. Some of the new offerings from the joint venture are now in the beverage vertical and that was also an important development, considering the continued growth of the specialty beverage market.

The company seems to be quite serious about the success of this joint venture with Fjord and announced yesterday that it was working on the redesign of its website so that the product offerings from the joint venture could be listed.
