TORONTO, ON--(NewMediaWire - Nov 1, 2017) - Amfil Technologies Inc. (OTC PINK: AMFE) is pleased to announce that it has closed on the acquisition of Natural Stuff Inc. to further expand on the distribution side of the company. Natural Stuff Inc. is a distributor of products to over 300 clients across Canada. Natural Stuff Inc. holds distribution rights to many food and beverage brands including 28 Black, a wildly popular premium energy drink. Further, Natural Stuff Inc. is in the process of closing several deals with large and small format retailers across Canada, with a potential of over 5000 locations collectively.
As part of the acquisition agreement, the founder and President of Natural Stuff Inc., Silvano Racioppo, will remain in a leadership position for the entity, and will act as a consultant for the expansion of all associated business. Mr. Racioppo has over 25 years' experience in the distribution and logistics industries, having expanded into many food and drink brands, leading to generation of approximately $18 Million per year in revenue for his business.
A family tragedy in early 2017 pulled Mr. Racioppo away from his work, leading him to temporarily relinquish most of his market share while he cared for his family. Through this new partnership, as well as the leadership and organizational resources of Amfil Technologies Inc., it is anticipated that Mr. Racioppo will be able to restore much of the $18 million market share that he had obtained prior to the incident. Coupling this with the new targeted markets, this acquisition could significantly impact the company's bottom line in a positive manner over the coming months and years.
Further to the revenues expected from the current and potential market share of Natural Stuff Inc., the established portfolio of distributed brands will serve as an inroad for the portion of the emerging brands currently carried by Snakes & Lattes, including those products carried by the distribution division. This will be paramount to further fuel the explosive expansion of this division, and the brand as a whole.
Pairing Natural Stuff Inc. with the Snakes & Lattes distribution division should prove to be mutually beneficial for both entities. Snakes & Lattes has the established distribution center and network to allow for Natural Stuff Inc. to capture the large commercial clients required to propel and reclaim its former market share as well as take on large scale new clients. Concurrently, Snakes & Lattes can benefit from global promotion by Natural Stuff Inc. to importers around the world for its products.
Natural Stuff Inc. was acquired for 750,000 restricted shares of Amfil common stock.
Further details relating to the distribution business as well as the set launch date of Snakes & Lattes "Midtown" and audit completion date will be included in the company's next announcement. A large PR/Marketing Campaign will accompany the launch of "Midtown" with many TV / Media crews expected to make a presence. Amfil Technologies Inc. is also currently in active discussions with another distribution company and also negotiating acquisition terms that if proves to be a good fit will be acquired to further bolster the growing distribution side of the company. Further details are expected shortly.

2). The EcoPr03 GRO3 Antimicrobial System was jointly developed between Amfil Tech and A.C.T.S. Inc. which recently rebranded its technology under Advanced Ozone Integration as an extension of the existing ozone technology being utilized in the food and beverage industry and integrated by A.C.T.S. into companies such as Pepsi, Nestle, Sysco, Sun Pacific and many others. The system is a triple-function sanitization unit capable of naturally eliminating 99.9% of water and airborne pathogens and the typically problematic pests that wreak havoc for cultivators (like aphids, whiteflies and spider mites), as well as bacteria, fungus, microbes and mold on surfaces, all without chemicals. The unit can also constantly regulate a given facility's water supply, oxygenating the water and maintaining a consistent PPM infusion of ozone that prevents the formation of algae, bacteria or mold (allowing for comprehensive water recycling), simultaneously removing the need to use pesticides and/or dangerous, often carcinogenic products to treat production problems, as is common throughout the industry today. This environmentally-friendly solution also eliminates odors, while slightly reducing the air temperature, lowering energy consumption by the HEPA filtration and HVAC systems and could potentially allow for a facilities process to be labeled certified organic in the U.S.A. when the crop is no longer considered illegal on the federal level, otherwise "Clean Green" or "Certified Kind" in the meantime. The EcoPr03 GRO3 Antimicrobial System recently passed product review by a registered USDA certifying agent for use in California as well as Pennsylvania and surrounding states. More information on this product line can be found on the www.gro3systems.com website or on twitter @GRO3Systems.
