Firstly, allow us to apologize for not being around to deliver these updates for the past two weeks. Over the past two weeks, we have been touring two multi-billion dollar, multinational beverage companies through our facilities. They’ve seen the work we’re doing in Quebec City, Point Claire, and Bellville. They have also seen our facility in Grimsby. One of them brought their master brewer to our facility – and he loved our beer. In both cases we are in continuing negotiations about a CAD $30 million investment. In one case the CEO and chairman of the board of the company are planning a trip here to see our facility. In the other case, the recommendation was made to the chairman to fully fund our business, but he came back with additional questions which we now must answer. Our Business Development and Fundraising Team is hard at work on next steps for these two opportunities. Aside from this potentially exciting news, below are our updates.
