“Success Labs represents a major milestone for our company and is part of our goal to become more vertically integrated when in-house processing makes sense,” explained Verus CEO Anshu Bhatnagar. “Surprisingly enough, world-wide gummi production capacity is currently strained, so this is partly a strategic move, given our expectations for a major expansion into more Major League Baseball (“MLB”) team markets during 2020.”
