- Else adds a second US powder production facility and begins manufacturing in Europe, tripling its production capacity.
- Else increases production pace to end out-of-stock and build up inventory levels.
VANCOUVER, BC, March 2, 2023 – ELSE NUTRITION HOLDINGS INC. (BABY) (BABYF) (0YL.F) (“Else” or the “Company”), announces that it has begun manufacturing in a second powder production facility in the US and that it will perform the first commercial production in Europe in March 2023. The additional production facilities more than triple Else’s production capacity.
Until the end of 2022 Else Nutrition had a single powder manufacturing plant that supported its sales in North America and globally. The addition of the two new production facilities will allow Else to satisfy the fast-growing retail demand from brick-and-mortar retailers and online sales from Amazon and Else’s e-store. The additional production will reduce the risk of future out-of-stock dramatically.
In January and February Else performed two commercial production campaigns in the US, resolving many out-of-stock issues. In March Else will perform three additional production campaigns, two in the US and one in Europe, resolving all remaining out-of-stock issues. Else plans to continue its accelerated manufacturing plan throughout 2023 to support the growing demand and to establish a higher level of available inventory.
“The additional production facilities will allow us to stabilize our production and build up sufficient inventory levels to meet the robust demand from our customers.” – Hamutal Yitzhak, Else’s CEO, and Co-Founder. “We are excited to have entered a new phase in our journey, where leading grocery and mass North American retailers are now adding our products to their shelves, our ability to properly support this fast-growing demand is critical for our success.”
