VANCOUVER, BC / ACCESSWIRE / March 10, 2021 / Naturally Splendid Enterprises Ltd. ("Naturally Splendid") (TSX-V:NSP) (OTC:NSPDF) (Frankfurt:50N) is pleased to announce the Company has received another Purchase Order from its roster of clients in South Korea.
This Purchase Order for another 20 tonnes of hulled hemp seed, represents the fourth shipment to South Korea since March 3, 2020.
With the continuing news and activity surrounding increased consumer demand for plant-based nutrition, it is worth noting that hemp has the most digestible protein of any plant on earth. Therefore, these shipments of hulled hemp seed are well aligned with the Company's continued focus on plant-based nutrition.
Company CEO Mr. J. Craig Goodwin states, "According to The Korea Vegetarian Union (KVU) there are approximately 500,000 strict vegans in the country and about 1.5 million who pursue similar diets. The number of ‘flexitarians', those who follow an increased plant-based diet, is rapidly rising as well. It is estimated that as many as 10 million people, representing approximately 20% of South Korea's total population consider themselves flexitarians. This is further evidence that a diet increasingly focused on plant-based nutrition, continues to gain in popularity with consumers over a broad demographic. Naturally Splendid looks forward to pursuing these developing opportunities".
