Richmond, BC, May 28 2018 – Eastwood Bio-medical Canada Inc. (TSXV: EBM) (the “Company”)is pleased to highlight the accomplishments of a few major milestones as the BC based company prepares to finalize the its successful expansion of production facilities and the launch of new product lines.
Eastwood Bio-medical Canada Inc. is a biotechnology company that researches and commercializes bio-technologies regarding blood glucose related disorders such as diabetes, obesity, hypertension, and dementia. The Company is also expanding into manufacturing natural health products.
The Company’s shares traded at a low of $0.065 in April of 2018. On May 28, 2018, the shares closed at $0.215. Yunji Kim, President and CEO, stated that management of the Company was not aware of any new material information regarding the operations of the Company that might explain this movement.
But the Company did recently announce its successful expansion of production facilities and the launch of new product lines, subsequent to the acquisition of marketing approvals from Health Canada for these new products. Health Canada is the Canadian equivalent to the Federal Drug Administration (FDA) in the United States. As previously disclosed, the new GMP compliant facilities hold a Health Canada site licence and are currently capable of producing up to 3 million capsules and packaging 10,000 bottles a day. The Company expects the facilities to yield possible savings of up to $7 million annually in manufacturing costs.
“This aggressive expansion of a manufacturing facility was a move consistent with our long history of building strong foundations for our company. Our Eleotin® brand was originally based on cutting edge research from the Julia Macfarlane Center for Diabetes of the University of Calgary. Eleotin® has been studied and endorsed by international universities and diabetes associations. We have been authorized by Advertising Standards Canada (ASC) to market Eleotin® as the ‘World’s #1’ Doctor recommended Natural Source Healthy Blood Glucose Promoting Product available in Canada.”
Ms. Kim continued, “We are proud and excited about our expansion. Quality control has always been one of the highest priorities for us, if not the highest. We did not want to pursue our full market potential without securing first a world class in-house production capacity that could guarantee that the highest quality products, are made with the most ‘precise’ manufacturing techniques.”
The Company also announced this month the launch of 35 new products subsequent to acquiring marketing approvals from Health Canada, which is equivalent to FDA . With the proven ability to introduce in a steadyfast manner, fast track scientifically researched and developed unique health solutions, the Company expects to be continuously growing its line.
“It’s an exciting time for us. We are proud of what we built, and are looking forward to growing in the upcoming months.” Yunji Kim.
