Following the strong performance of its recent rotational programs in the U.S. (Los Angeles) and Canada, GURU has renewed its rotational program with a leading club wholesaler in Quebec, for another 16-week period starting this November. The Company also received confirmation for two additional regional rotational programs in the U.S. scheduled to start early 2024.

Over the last year, we’ve evolved our marketing and sales strategies to cater more closely to our consumers seeking Good Energy and we’re very pleased with the results. We look forward to continuing this momentum with a planned series of marketing activities, including the launch of our Fruit Punch and another new great-tasting innovation coming soon in the U.S.”
