Alexander M. Salgado, CEO and co-founder of Veritas Farms, commented, “Over this past fiscal quarterly period ended June 30, 2019, our expanding sales and marketing strategies combined with increasing interest and acceptance from mainstream consumers and traditional brick-and-mortar retailers have helped to propel Veritas Farms’ sales to new record levels - more than 5x our comparable 2nd Quarter 2018 sales and nearly 2x our sales from the 1st Quarter of this year.

“This sales growth was made possible by the solid foundation for success that we built over the past four years at our state-of-art 140-acre farm and production facilities in Pueblo, 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.

“Moving forward into the current 3rd Quarter, we have since greatly expanded our distribution network to over 4,500 retailers across the country including 1,350 Kroger Family of Stores locations, developed new innovative product lines for release later this year, and increased our already considerable cultivation and manufacturing capacities.”

Mr. Salgado concluded, “We expect these improvements will have a sustained positive effect on our financial results as the market for Veritas Farms™ hemp extract products grow throughout 2019.  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.”
