Apple Rush Company, Inc. updates progress on Japan Distribution

TITUSVILLE, Fla., June 03, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The Apple Rush Company, Inc. (US OTC PINK: APRU), updates its shareholders on our progress on Japanese distribution.

The company has been working for several months on a distribution deal in Japan.  The process of gaining approval in Japan required very specific information in both formulation and processing of our flagship product. Quarantine in Japan (equivalent to our FDA) requires that all ingredient suppliers provide all of the components with percentages to them for safety verification and validation.  The information required was substantial and proprietary but the company was successful in gaining access to everything needed for the application.  “I am excited by the fact that we have been able to get through the next phase of the approval process.   Our partners provided us with all of the information we needed in order to successfully fill out the complete application.  It was so specific it required the complete HAACP program used throughout the process from receiving ingredients, to blending, to bottling or canning, to pasteurization and packaging,” said Tony Torgerud, CEO of APRU.    

Further, the application for the International Trademarks has been filed and the required paperwork for joint ownership of the trademarks between Corr Brands and APRU, LLC has been processed.  We have begun the process of changing the label to meet Japanese regulations and will update shareholders on that process along the way.  We are seeking final approval with the thought of gaining entry to Japan with our unique 8 ounce sleek can that has proven to be a perfect fit with the lifestyle and habits of the Japanese consumer.  Vending and grocery retail are the primary distribution platforms being sought throughout the country.

“I've been working closely with Paul Guilfoile to bring this project to completion and appreciate the effort he has put in up to this point.  He will prove to be an invaluable asset to us and our advisory board moving forward with his extensive knowledge and experience within the juice category during his decades of business in Japan,” continued Tony.
