June 2, 2022 – Vancouver, British Columbia – Blender Bites Ltd. (the “Company”, “Blender Bites” or “Blender”), (CSE: BITE, FWB: JL40, WKN: A3DWAM), an award-winning Canadian company involved in the development and marketing of a line of premium, organic and plant-based pre-portioned frozen functional foods, provides a summary of its shareholder update call, held on June 1, 2022.
Q2 2022 Revenue Performance
During Q2 2022, the Company witnessed increased revenues compared to same quarter last year (“Q2 2021”), and also compared to the previous three month period ending January 31, 2022 (“Q1 2022”).
In Q2 2022 the Company saw revenues of $1,281,441 compared to $172,922 during Q2 2021 which represents a 641% increase, with respective cost of goods sold being $1,024,609 and $120,992.
Q2 2022 revenues were also significantly increased by 64.5% compared to Q1 2022 (“Q1”), where Q1 saw revenues of $779,121, with cost of goods sold of $596,000.
Q2’s positive revenue results reflect the team’s dedication to deliver strong growth and, ultimately profitability for the Company.
Assuming the maintenance of order sizes from existing customers, recurring orders from the World’s largest club store chain in Western Canada, and the securing of an additional, pending, US Club Store division, the Company anticipates generating roughly C$10 million in revenue by the end December 2022.
The Company has pre-ordered sufficient raw materials at fixed prices for anticipated production necessary to satisfy the projected revenue for the calendar year ended December 31, 2022, and has sufficient working capital on hand to fulfil projected orders. The Company is dependent on third-party supply chains to deliver raw materials necessary for production, however, and disruptions in deliveries could result in delays in order fulfilment.
US & Canada Expansion
The Company will continue to focus on the future and the development and execution of upcoming projects and its aggressive expansion plans to generate value for new and existing customers, as well as shareholders.
The United States represents a significant segment of the smoothie market which is expected to reach US$17 billion by 2026, at a CAGR of 10.1%, and the Company will look to capitalize on this significant market segment with the roll out to additional grocery retail and club stores within other major markets in the US. The Company has initiated discussions with some of these distribution businesses.
The Company believe that with its successful expansion into South West US club stores and more recently into Western Canada club stores, in conjunction with the successful execution of our aggressive US expansion plan as well as its nationwide Canada roll out, will position the Company to continue its upward trajectory and strong growth heading into 2023.
