Organto Foods Inc. (TSX-V: OGO, OTC: OGOFF) (“Organto” or “the Company”), an integrated provider of value-added organic vegetables and fruits today announced that it has entered into a long-term strategic supply relationship with an established supplier of conventional and organic fruits and vegetables operating in Zimbabwe.

Under the terms of the five-year agreement, Organto will have exclusive sales rights for all organic products produced by the supply partner, and will initially focus on Organto’s value-added year-round organic vegetables, including organic green beans, organic snow peas and organic sugar snaps. Delivery of these products are expected to commence late in December 2018. Annualized revenue potential of over CDN $5 million is expected at current forecast production rates, with significant expansion possible subject to the availability of additional organic acreage1.

Aligned with Organto’s strategic business model, and as a second phase to this strategic relationship, Organto also plans to add organic soft fruits such as organic blueberries and blackberries, and other organic vegetables including organic asparagus tips, for delivery in the second half of 2019.

“We are excited to work with our new supply partner as we expand our sourcing and supply platform for our core year-round value-added branded vegetable products.” commented Steve Bromley, Chair and Interim CEO of Organto Foods Inc. “We have been challenged in the past by supply/demand imbalances on these products, so we are pleased to add this strategic supply source to our year-round platform.”

The addition of this new supply source is part of Organto’s strategy to expand its value-added organic vegetables and fruits product offering. Organto continues to increase its supply capabilities via the addition of new supplier relationships focused on organic soft, tropical and exotic fresh fruits and other organic vegetables, in order to diversify its revenue streams beyond just high-value organic vegetables. Organto intends to continue to establish supply relationships with strategic growers in key supply markets in order to expand market presence and develop opportunities for Organto “I am Organic” branded products as well as private label and distributed product offerings.
