Naturally Splendid Ships Container of Hemp to Southeast Asia
Vancouver, British Columbia – TheNewswire - March 3, 2020 - Naturally Splendid Enterprises Ltd. ("Naturally Splendid", “NSE” or “the Company”) (FRANKFURT:50N) (TSXV:NSP) (OTC:NSPDF) announces they have processed a purchase order for a container of hulled hemp seed destined for South Korea.
Naturally Splendid has been receiving increased interest from Southeast Asia looking to Canada for safe efficacious food. Canada’s agricultural practices are recognized as amongst the highest standards in the world. Increased inquiries from this region are due to a number of factors that may include the on-going coronavirus that is disrupting distribution channels in Southeast Asia.

Naturally Splendid Advisor Mr. Robert Arthurs, a former BC Ministry of International Trade Senior Manager specializing on business throughout Asia, will be assigned the task of assessing the needs of Southeast Asia. Mr. Arthurs reports, “Traditional distribution channels for food throughout Asia have been disrupted and will likely require augmentation from alternative distribution sources. We believe Naturally Splendid can assist in this regard.”
Company CEO Mr. J. Craig Goodwin states, “We are committed to providing safe nutritious food across a variety of sectors and distribution channels. Naturally Splendid has previous roots exporting containers of bulk hemp food which I oversaw as CEO in 2016. If demand continues to grow in this region for hemp, we have the experience and logistics to ramp up our volumes for exporting in very short order.”
