We are delighted to provide an update that as of the end of February 2021, Kisses From Italy and Mastro Vinci branded products can now be found in 20 stores across Quebec and Ontario and we strongly believe that the store count carrying our products will continue to climb", added Di Turi, "In addition, we continue to search for the best products at competitive prices to add to our Kisses From Italy branded products stable. We will definitely continue to branch out into product lines that complement our current offerings and remain in-line with the Company's vision."
