- Significant milestone demonstrating sales momentum of VINIA®

Vancouver, British Columbia and Rehovot, Israel--(Newsfile Corp. - September 6, 2023) - BioHarvest Sciences Inc, (CSE: BHSC) (OTCQB: CNVCF) (FSE: 8MV) ("BioHarvest" or "the Company") announces that US sales of its flagship product VINIA® in the month of August have crossed the USD 1Million per month line. This significant milestone marks a new inflection point in BioHarvest's journey and offers further validation of its Botanical Synthesis technology platform.
This milestone also demonstrates the power of the VINIA® brand. VINIA® continues to achieve a best-in-class verified customer rating of 4.8 out of 5 with over 2,700 verified reviews, demonstrating its significant positive impact to consumers' lives. With production capacity on the ascending curve, BioHarvest plans to leverage the sales momentum in order to reach the efficiencies of scale required to achieve profitability in the near term.
"What makes this milestone so outstanding is that it is being achieved while improving marketing efficiency. This gives us a strong shot of confidence in the future to come, as we prepare to bring additional products to market," stated CEO Ilan Sobel, adding, "We have built a powerful direct marketing and sales platform already capable of delivering over $1Million in monthly revenue with just one product SKU. I am looking forward to reaching new revenue milestones as we aggressively grow our product portfolio in the next 12 months."
All North American VINIA® packaged sales are "direct-to-consumer," and the product is exclusively available on www.vinia.com and on www.Amazon.com. VINIA® is the first commercially released product developed using BioHarvest's proprietary Botanical Synthesis platform, which can consistently produce patentable botanical compositions without growing the plant itself. The platform can elicit (increase) specific active phytochemicals to achieve concentrations many times what is found in nature, making this technology efficient and economic. VINIA® contains multiple polyphenols, including Piceid Resveratrol, with an amount in each daily 400mg capsule that is equivalent to 1,000 grapes, resulting in a powerful nutraceutical that has been clinically proven to significantly increase arterial dilation.
