Alexander M.

“This sales growth was made possible by the solid foundation for success that we built over the past four years at our state-of-the-art 140-acre farm and production facilities in Pueblo and Aurora, Colorado, our unwavering commitment to product quality, and our growing reputation as one of the country’s most trusted vertically integrated hemp extract product brands in the country.

“We greatly expanded our distribution network to over 6,000 retailers across the country, developed and released new innovative product lines, and increased our already considerable cultivation and manufacturing capacities.”

Mr. Salgado concluded, “The Veritas Farms’ foundation for growth continues into 2020 as we continue to expand the chain retail channel to over 7,500 chain retail stores, increased products including our Veritas Pets™ line of products and achieve record growth in our online platform. While the outbreak of COVID-19 has slowed some retail elements of our expansion plans, our online pivots and long-term adjustments are intended to capitalize on current e-commerce consumer behavior and the reopening of retail as it unfolds. We are confident that our lab-tested full spectrum hemp extract products will exceed the high expectations of every consumer, health care provider, and distributor.”
