BURLINGTON, ON, July 16, 2019 /CNW/ - Rapid Dose Therapeutics Corp. (CSE: DOSE), ("RDT") and Ukraine Pharma (the "Company") announced today that they have signed a twelve month distribution agreement (the "Agreement") to export QuickStrip™ nutraceutical products to Ukraine and a number of other Eastern European countries, giving the Company rights to market the Energy, B12, and Sleep QuickStrip™ nutraceutical products to a consumer base of over 200 million people with tremendous buying power.
The Agreement requires a minimum quarterly order of one million of each of RDT's Energy, B12, and Sleep QuickStrips™ and the Company has provided RDT with a signed purchase order for US$2.1 million.
RDT's proprietary QuickStrip™ technology is a Quick, Convenient, Precise, Discreet™ oral fast-dissolving drug delivery system that offers an Anytime, Anywhere™ product to consumers. Ukraine Pharma expects to distribute QuickStrip™ by the third calendar quarter of 2019.
"This represents the beginning of a growing opportunity for RDT to provide its QuickStrip™ products to people wanting an effective and innovative means of delivering nutraceuticals," said Mark Upsdell, CEO of RDT. "The Agreement with Ukraine Pharma elevates QuickStrip™ as a growing international brand and delivery device to major market consumers, while simultaneously offering health benefits and improving patient outcomes."
"When we were introduced to the QuickStrip™ technology and nutraceutical product line, we knew this will significantly change the way drugs are delivered," said Veronica Burke, CEO of Ukraine Pharma. "The high quality product combined with the innovative delivery system is something we consider is much needed in the numerous Eastern European countries in which we have established relationships. We will begin distribution in Ukraine and expand from there."
