VANCOUVER, British Columbia, June 25, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- “LeanLife Health Inc. (the “Company” or “LeanLife”) (CSE:LLP) announced today that it has retained external consultants to assist with ensuring that all of its Omega 3 products meet relevant food safety requirements and designations in Canada and the United States. The engagement is in addition to, and will augment, the Company’s effort to obtain government authorization for production of Omega 3 products at its Canadian manufacturing facility.
LeanLife continues to prepare for initial production at the 4,000 sq. ft. facility it leased in Vancouver earlier this year. The plant will be responsible for the manufacture of all LeanLife Omega 3 products, including ingredients for making and/or fortifying commercial foods such as bread, noodles, juices, yogurt and cheese.
“I am pleased with the progress LeanLife has made toward obtaining the permits and approvals needed to manufacture our products, as well as to meet the standards set forth by large commercial users of Omega 3 ingredients,” commented Stan Lis, Chief Executive Officer of LeanLife Health. “The addition of third-party consultants to this effort should enable us to obtain some of the approvals sooner, which would obviously be positive for our go-to-market strategy.”
