New business verticals allow Hill Street to monetize patented DehydraTECH(TM) technology usage rights acquired from Lexaria BioScience and capitalize on surging global Cannabis market
Toronto, Ontario–(Newsfile Corp. – March 29, 2021) – Hill Street Beverage Company Inc. (TSXV: BEER) (“Hill Street” or the “Company“) has announced a new investor information package with a bold new direction that formalizes monetization plans and innovative business strategies.
Hill Street, the award-winning producer of superior alcohol-free brands will leverage its recently acquired rights to use non-pharmaceutical Cannabis patents and intellectual property owned by Lexaria Bioscience Corp. (“Lexaria“) to pioneer a new business space where craft quality meets bioscience.
“This new direction will position the Company to satisfy accelerating global demand for superior commercial ingredients and consumer products,” said Lori Senecal, co-interim CEO of Hill Street Beverages Inc. “Lexaria’s patented DehydraTECHTM technology is an incredible engine for growth, that allows us to continue to build trusted brands and create a new, robust portfolio of revenue generating businesses.”
These new products will be brought to market under the Company’s wholly owned subsidiary Hill Avenue Cannabis Company that will be comprised of two units, Hill Avenue Cannabis Brands and Hill Avenue Cannabis Technologies.
Hill Avenue Cannabis Brands will specialize in business-to-consumer (B2C) edibles products for a growing global market. Hill Avenue Cannabis Technologies will provide DehydraTECHTM enabled business-to-business (B2B) solutions for both extractors and consumer packaged goods (CPG) manufacturers. These opportunities facilitate entry into new categories, industries and geographies.
“These two new units will offer a wide range of expertise covering everything from oil conversion services to help extractors extend shelf life by turning oil into shelf stable powder, to the production and sale of DehydraTECHTM powder to CPG manufacturers for infusion into their products,” added Craig Binkley, co-interim CEO of Hill Street Beverages Inc. “We anticipate that our Lucknow R&D Labs in Mississauga, Ontario, will play a future role in Cannabinoid product R&D, giving us multiple ways to add significant value in the Cannabis sector.”
This new strategy expands the company’s commercial potential by adding higher margin intellectual property (IP) to current CPG expertise and scaled B2B to its already strong B2C business and extending sales beyond Canada to a truly global market.
