Rritual Superfoods to Launch Product Line in CVS Stores - Nationwide
Rritual’s product offerings to be featured in newly launched CVS HealthHUB retail locations across USA
VANCOUVER, June 29 2021 – Rritual Superfoods Inc. (“Rritual” or the “Company”) (CSE: RSF) (FSE: 0RW) (OTC: RRSFF) is excited to announce the Company’s premium brand of functional superfoods will launch in CVS stores across the USA.
“This phase one placement at CVS, the largest drugstore chain in the USA,1 is a significant milestone for Rritual’s national retail rollout. In terms of the Rritual brand, placement with CVS further establishes confidence in our products and escalating demand for this category with consumers,” said Mr. David Kerbel, Rritual Superfoods CEO. “Rritual’s placement in CVS is doubly significant because our products have been chosen for CVS’s new HealthHUB locations, which aims to transform the ‘consumer health experience’ with education and personalized service from CVS trained professionals at the community level.”
In 2020, CVS opened 650 HealthHUB locations, and it plans to have 1,500 locations open by the end of 2021. CVS HealthHUB locations offer online streams of wellness and nutrition content from its community rooms in place of in-person classes, and care concierges pivoted to focus on reaching out to patients telephonically.
CVS will carry Rritual’s full individual product line, including:
- Chaga IMMUNE with adaptogens Eleuthero Root and Astragalus to support healthy immune function and well-being all year round.
- Lion's Mane FOCUS with adaptogens Rhodiola Rosea Root and Bacopa to support brain health and cognitive function.
- Reishi RELAX with adaptogen Ashwagandha and cacao to help the body adapt to stress.
Rritual will work with CVS to develop an in-store education program for CVS trained professionals to best serve CVS consumers on their “path to better health.”
Rritual has scaled its production to meet growing demand, with a strategic sales and marketing focus aimed at major retailers across the USA in 2021. As previously noted, Rritual’s retail strategy is disruptive, the Company is aiming at national retailers rather than regional rollouts to gain market share and establish category defining leadership.
Rritual product offerings are all USDA-certified organic and are a caffeine-free option that can be mixed with other beverages or enjoyed by itself. Rritual's proprietary Immune-Synergy Six Mushroom Blend is the only functional health product on the market that contains a daily prebiotic blend which nourishes a healthy gut microbiome and facilitates balanced digestive function.
