Additionally, the Company was approved for listing on Amazon on August 9, 2021. The approval permits the Company to make its five skus available for sale on the Amazon e-commerce website. Expected sales will depend on the sales and marketing plan, which will include marketing expenditure for targeted advertisements on Amazon to boost the profile of the Company’s products on the website. This is an addition to and not in lieu of the Company’s other sales platforms and opportunities, including the Company’s flagship e-store. The Company has also been working with other manufacturers and sampling new functional mushroom food products in various product categories.

One has advanced to the R&D stage with functional mushroom compounds provided by the Company to the potential partner, and the Company received the first iteration of beverage samples on or about December 3, 2021.
