NEW YORK, NY, Aug. 24, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — via NEWMEDIAWIRE — Tauriga Sciences Inc.. (OTCQB:TAUG) (“Tauriga” or the “Company”), a revenue generating, diversified life sciences company with a proprietary line of functional chewing gum supplements and two ongoing Biotechnology initiatives, issues the following to Letter to Shareholders from the Company’s CEO:
Dear Valued Shareholder,
To begin this letter, I want to take a moment to express my gratitude to shareholders for your loyalty, patience, and commitment. It was just about 18 months ago today that this Company was gearing up – with great enthusiasm – to launch the first flavor of its Tauri-Gum™ product line: CBD Infused Mint.
We have achieved so much since then, and today, I want to provide you with a more thorough and detailed understanding of our vision for the path ahead, what we have recently accomplished and how it matters to that path, and what we are most focused on achieving next.
First off, we have created and developed a unique product line of the highest quality – based on an innovative product vision. Our Tauri-Gum™ product line is comprised of six distinct flavors (or versions) of our proprietary “Functional” Chewing Gum, which exists as a Cannabinoid supplement. Three of the Flavors are infused with Cannabidiol (“CBD”) – Mint, Blood Orange, and Pomegranate. Two of the Flavors are infused with Cannabigerol (“CBG”) – Peach-Lemon and Black Currant. And one flavor is infused with Vitamin C and Zinc – Pear Bellini (Immune Booster). In addition, we have also developed our popular “pectin based” CBD infused Gum Drop product.
All of our products meet the highest standards for quality and distinction even among the most selective consumers: Kosher Certified, Vegan, Lab Tested (NO THC), NON-GMO, Natural Flavors, Allergen Free, Gluten Free, GMP Certified Manufacturer, 100% Made in the USA.
From a scientific standpoint, the sublingual delivery system is highly effective, providing optimal bioavailability. The oral mucosa in the mouth provides a complete and effective channel, as a delivery system, for ANY TYPE of health and wellness Supplement(s), resulting in enhanced bioavailability – in direct comparison to topicals or digested edibles. We also believe that there is a solid future in developing proprietary chewing gum(s) as a means of providing customers with numerous types of Supplements.
Today, we are laser focused on aggressively commercializing our products as well as the expansion of our distribution relationships – to further strengthen our foundation for long term success. Over the course of 2020, the Company has built a successful and fast-growing E-Commerce business segment (www.taurigum.com). We have also recently achieved important steps to broaden our market footprint, penetrate new market opportunities, and broaden our means of payment acceptance – to widen the prospective customer base.
While these past 18 months have been of great importance in creating a strong foundation highlighted by our completed Tauri-Gum™ product line, we believe the greatest value lies in the Future – what we are headed for over the short, intermediate, and long terms.
Over the coming days and weeks, the Company will be launching a major new product offering – while simultaneously rolling out the existing products on a national level through a new broad-based distribution agreement. We expect to have more details to share in the near term.
We are also continuing to realize important levels of progress, with respect to our two major biotechnology initiatives:
- We are developing a Pharmaceutical Grade version of Tauri-Gum™, aimed at treating extreme nausea (“nausea regulation”), as a side effect of ongoing chemotherapy treatment. The Company filed its Provisional Patent during March 2020 and is working diligently towards progressing to a Phase II Clinical Trial.
- During April 2020, the Company entered into a Collaboration Agreement with Aegea Biotechnologies Inc. to “Develop a Rapid, Multiplexed Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) Test Designed to Exhibit Superior Performance.” The Company has invested nearly $300,000 into this Collaboration Agreement (as of August 24, 2020) and continues to realize important progress towards the joint strategic endpoints.
Finally, Tauriga has engaged the services of a renowned digital marketing, branding, and public relations (www.TigerGMP.com) to increase our presence and visibility on both Social and Digital medias. We strongly believe in our vision, and we feel it is in our shareholders’ best interests to gain visibility through transparency and outreach so the investing world can follow our progress and long-term objectives.
Our new public relations firm will be working diligently in assisting the Company with the task of getting our message out to our current and prospective shareholders and to the public at large aggressively and with complete transparency.
