Fitmark has continued to grow in every category of the meal prep bag business. With this new round of financing, the Company will make a concentrated effort in continuing to strengthen its direct-to-consumer, E-commerce sales pipeline, as it will allow the Company to carry its mission to provide the greatest customer experience of any brand in its industry. Additionally, the new financing will also allow the Company to start scaling its newest venture, i won! nutrition. Recently launched in February of this year, the new brand has already seen tremendous success with the launch of its first snack, an organic protein chip, with plans of releasing a second high protein snack later this year. Founder, Mark Samuel, believes the Company’s organic protein chips are the greatest protein chips on the planet, and he has plans to build i won! nutrition into a leader in the organic and non-GMO, high protein snacks category.
