    ECS Botanics Holdings Ltd (ASX: ECS or Company) is pleased to announce its distribution
    partner Just Foods Australia Pty Ltd (JFA) has secured distribution into Woolworths for ECS
    Botanics Mexican Spiced Bean Soup with Hemp and Indian Masala Lentil Soup with Hemp.

    Total revenue to be generated from the distribution of the soups
    to Woolworths is uncertain at this time. ECS will provide further
    information regarding timing and order quantities as it becomes
    available. Further manufacturing runs will be required to meet
    anticipated first order and subsequent order volumes.
    The ECS soup products are positioned for people seeking a
    convenient, great tasting and healthy meal option. They consist of
    high quality and majority plant-based ingredients, developed by an
    experienced team of chefs and nutritionists.
    The addition of these product lines into Woolworths complements
    the announcement in November last year regarding the
    introduction of ECS’ Hemp Seed Oil to their range.
    Woolworths is Australia’s largest supermarket chain with 995
    stores across Australia and 115,000 employees, with a focus on
    working closely with Australian growers and farmers to deliver
    quality products to Australian consumers.
    Alex Keach, Managing Director of ECS, commented:
    “Our Fast Moving Consumer Goods (FMCG) soups are unique in
    the market place and this latest deal is testament to the products
    branding and positioning towards a growing retail segment. The deal also signifies the
    immense capability of Just Foods Australia, underpinned by the close working relationship we
    share. We have built a team of people with complementary skill sets, shared passion and
    beliefs. While the success we’ve achieved in the short term is pleasing, mostimportantly we
    are setting the foundation and capability to leverage the first mover opportunity in an exciting,
    high growth and evolving industry.”
