CVS pharmacy distribution is the first major US drug store retailer and largest national customer for Else Nutrition
VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Sept. 07, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ELSE NUTRITION HOLDINGS INC. (BABY) (BABYF) (0YL.F) ("Else" or the "Company"), announces that it has begun the rollout to its first major US drug store retailer, through a partnership with CVS Pharmacy.
Else's Plant-Based Nutrition for Toddlers will be available for purchase in over 1,000 CVS Pharmacy HealthHUB locations across 35 US states. Already on shelves in many of the CVS pharmacy stores listed for distribution, this represents a growth opportunity for Else Nutrition in key markets, as well as access to millions of new households through CVS locations.
“Being available for purchase in CVS is a strategic milestone for Else in the North American market,” said Hamutal Yitzhak, CEO, and Co-Founder of Else Nutrition. “Adding an additional 1,000 doors are a material increase in our footprint in the US market, and we expect the added credibility and customer reach of CVS to compound the growth effect of these new doors,” she continued.
“The placement in HealthHUB locations aligns with our strategy of providing the healthiest possible nutrition to toddlers and kids. This distribution will help introduce Else to new health-conscious consumers as the first choice for minimally processed whole plant nutrition for toddlers,” added Hamutal Yitzhak.
