Global Gardens Group Reaches China Stores

VANCOUVER, Dec. 6, 2017 (Canada NewsWire via COMTEX) --

Global Gardens Group Inc. (the "Company") (TSXV: VGM) is pleased to announce the arrival of its proprietary "Veggemo" non-dairy vegetable based milk line onto retailer store shelves in China.

To-date eight containers of Veggemo have been shipped to China with an additional two containers to ship out by year end. Six of the containers have made it into stores in support of customer demand. To highlight a few important retailers:

    --  BHG Market Place - an upscale supermarket with stores across
        mainland China. BHG carries an extensive product selection
        including produce and organic products.
    --  FamilyMart - One of the largest chains in China with franchised
        convenience stores covering all major markets like Shanghai,
        Beijing and Guangzhou.
    --  Ole Supermarkets - High end stores focusing on fashion,
        consumer products and exotic fresh fruits and vegetables.
        Targeting a white collar customer, 70% of product in-store is
        imported.


Warren Spence, CEO V-Power (China) states "these well-known and targeted retailers play an important role in establishing the Veggemo footprint in China. BHG and Ole have a premium shopper who desire healthy products. Furthermore, imported products, especially from trusted markets like North America, are in demand. Additionally, the on-line and convenience store market in China continues to boom* as time starved consumers look for convenience. Veggemo's availability in FamilyMart provides the outlets to reach them." Mr. Spence continues, "Veggemo has arrived in about 250 stores to-date and we will reach over 800 stores in China by mid 2018."
