Nepra Foods Inc. (CSE: NPRA) BREAKING NEWS: Following Successful IPO Nepra Foods Isssues Letter from the CEO - Nepra Foods Inc. (the "Company" or "Nepra") creator of nutritious plant-based and allergen-free food is pleased to share this corporate update letter from CEO David Wood.
Dear Fellow Shareholders, Our team at Nepra Foods is thrilled to have oversubscribed our Initial Public Offering, successfully raising gross proceeds of $7.5 million at an offering price of $0.47 CAD. I'm also delighted to deliver my first shareholder letter as CEO of Nepra and introduce our products and story to you.
Of course, before proceeding further, I must also express our gratitude to new shareholders and Canaccord Genuity for efficaciously and professionally leading this milestone financing.
Charged by the plant-based movement and an exceptional product line-up, we are now looking forward to forging a new history. Nepra offers customers the best in product innovation and customer service while charting a corporate growth strategy driven to provide value and transparency to its shareholders.
Nepra is led by a team of master bakers, chefs, and executives with decades of experience in the food industry. Ingrained in the company culture is a commitment to future-oriented innovation. Since its inception in 2016, everything Nepra has accomplished aims to solve challenges faced by the industry. One of those challenges is food allergies. The WHO estimates between 1-3% of adults globally have some food allergy. That number increases to 4-6% for children. Producing high-quality and nutritious allergen-free food can be challenging and requires specialized technical creativity. The team at Nepra has the experience and skill to take those challenges head-on.
The speed of lasting change is accelerating in the industry, and the changes we see in the sector are primarily for the better. A renewed interest in better nutrition and wellness after a global pandemic has roused people to take their health more seriously. One way of the best ways to improve our health is better nutrition. It reminds me of a quote from Hippocrates, "Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food." Unfortunately, one of the failures of our modern food industry is that it has genuinely let humanity down by making so many foods that have little or no nutritional value. Moreover, healthy eating is more expensive and less accessible. At Nepra Foods, we are emboldened to make it easier to eat healthy.
We have quietly been building a multi-category foundation behind the mantra, "The Evolution of Eating." Focusing on plant-based foods high in protein and fiber, lower in carbohydrates, and truly nutritious - everything Nepra does is plant-based, allergen-free, and gluten-free. In addition, the Company develops and produces proprietary ingredients that are sold to other food producers and used in our own consumer products.
Over the past five years, Nepra has also established a growing business-to-business portfolio providing proprietary specialized ingredients to food producers across North America. Additionally, the Company has newly established consumer distribution with direct-to-consumer as well as traditional retailers.

Mark Wong, CEO of S&W Seed Company, commented, "S&W has developed unique, non-GMO, all-natural stevia varieties over the past ten years utilizing our proprietary plant breeding program. Recently, we have made what we believe is a significant leap forward by validating efficacy of stevia production in the southeastern United States. By leveraging a unique seed-to-plant process and mechanical harvesting system, we expect to dramatically reduce overall production costs.
