The overall decrease in loss was achieved mostly from increasing gross margins, a reduction of corporate and general costs, and a reduction of selling costs.

"During this period of transition, we continue to generate consistent revenue while lowering costs and increasing gross margins. Our focus now is on sales, marketing and branding to engage the customer and build valued, long-term, profitable relationships. To this effect, we recently engaged several national sales brokerages during the quarter which will effectively align their collective sales representatives to execute cross-selling in our approximate 7,000 retail store base as well as add new retail regional, national sales opportunities. This focus, together with our experienced board, management and investor based, will help drive us to our goal of building a leading, global natural sweetener company," noted Steven Haasz, President and Chief Executive Officer.
