"Based on our experience in the Canadian marketplace, we expect that this single product order represents only the first of many orders from our national, regional, and local retailer clients that will eventually carry several Green Hygienics sourced products. We look forward to working closely with our established clients to increase awareness and sales of green Hygienics products across the country."Further Green Hygienics product distribution related announcements are expected as purchase orders and agreements are completed.
