(“Allied” or the “Company”) (OTCQB: ALID) is pleased to announce the signing of a supply contract (the “contract”) for the 2022 calendar year and beyond.

The Allied Inside™ value proposition enables national brands and companies to brand, market and sell their retail products into their market with the Allied Inside™ product contained. The Allied product is produced in Colombia and provided as a wholesale product to many international partners to then distribute and sell. The Allied Inside™ model offers qualified clients the ability to import large volumes of Colombian produced flower with a small up front percentage of payment and the remainder due under terms of future payment (ie 60-90days). This enables off-take partners to sell into their market and essentially pay for the remainder of the payment out of their sales revenue.

“We are excited to bring the Allied Inside™ business model to market. In my opinion, Veterans for Healing is the perfect partner. As Colombia continues to move towards the ability to export cannabis flower to countries where it is legal to do so, these contracts point to the demand that the global cannabis market is asking for. We believe that these supply contracts are just the start of Allied’s production volumes. We harvest on a weekly basis and by nature of this we believe that we will be able to provide rolling supply that is harvested fresh every week. We also continue to build relationships with buyers in many different countries around the globe and, through this, we believe that we are ready to supply the market demand in many international markets where it is legal to do so.” said Mr. Calum Hughes, CEO and Chairman of Allied Corp.
