LAS VEGAS and VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Sept. 16, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — TAAT® GLOBAL ALTERNATIVES INC. (CSE: TAAT) (OTCQX: TOBAF) (FRANKFURT: 2TP) (the “Company” or “TAAT®”) is pleased to announce that it has dispatched a “full-container” shipment of TAAT® to the United Kingdom, marking the Company’s largest U.K. shipment to date at approximately three times the amount of product sent previously. This shipment will be used to further expand distribution of TAAT® outside of the Greater London area into additional markets in the southeastern region of the United Kingdom, which the Company is presently coordinating with Green Global Earth (“GGE”), its U.K. wholesale partner.
TAAT® Chief Executive Officer Michael Saxon commented, “So far, 2022 has been an adventure as we expanded internationally into the United Kingdom. Certain challenges we have faced in the supply chain are customary, especially for a new product like TAAT®. We believe we are at the end of those early-stage hurdles and we can begin to ship more regularly to the U.K., as our first international market. I was in London earlier this week working directly with our partners at GGE to plan how exactly we will carry out our upcoming expansion within the United Kingdom, and I will be returning later this year to discuss our plans for 2023.”

In a press release dated July 22, 2022, TAAT® announced that it had received a third reorder from GGE, who was particularly enthusiastic about receiving TAAT® made with Beyond Tobacco™ “V3”. Adult smokers in the United States and the United Kingdom have indicated that the experience of smoking V3 is enjoyable and bears a greater resemblance to the experience of smoking regular tobacco, despite containing no nicotine. As of this writing TAAT® is primarily sold in South London; a presence that the Company and GGE intend to leverage to organically establish an expanded footprint in new markets in nearby regions.
