Start-up and Speed to market

“We are very pleased to receive our licensing in Oregon,” commented Nutritional High CEO Jim Frazier.  “This is another of many great advancements that Nutritional High has made in recent months.  The commencement of our manufacturing and processing operations in California earlier this month, and now Oregon, fulfills key components of our vision for 2018.”

“We are all excited to start production at the La Pine facility and launch our FLI-branded products into the Oregon market place,” continued Mr. Frazier.  “The La Pine facility will further our West Coast manufacturing reach and give us the ability to expand further by partnering with other brands as well.  In addition, La Pine will be one of our premier Research and Development facilities where we will have a team dedicated to developing unique and innovative products not just for Oregon but for all markets where we operate. La Pine will be working with a major distributor in the Oregon market to drive sales and distribute our products state wide.”
