PittMoss has Demonstrated Significant Benefits as Sustainable Animal Bedding
PittMoss® RoostTM Poultry Bedding is achieving considerable interest and acceptance among organic chicken farmers due to the crisis created by Covid-19. New opportunities spring from necessity. Covid-19 has again focused our attention on the national, corporate meat processing industry with newsworthy, unhealthy working conditions and a disregard for employee safety. Meat processing is controlled by roughly 10 large companies in the United States, controlling 80% of the supply. The supply chain interruption, lack of flexibility, waste, and employee frustration at these processing facilities has created a shift to reliance on clean, sustainable, organic, regional farmers.
This growing demand creates a large opportunity for PittMoss Roost. We are already shipping product and continue to run trials and R & D to further demonstrate the value of this product to smaller, regional poultry farmers.
In addition, Roost is capturing the interest of the retail customer raising backyard and urban chickens due to its benefits:
· Odor killing
· pH neutral
· Accelerated compostability
· 25% moisture reduction
· Dust reduction
· Effectiveness lasting 3-4 times longer than wood shavings
Consumers are striving to deal with their anxiety over Covid-19 and to achieve more control over their food source. Covid-19 has motivated families to participate more actively, with a sense of urgency, in teaching their children to get involved and participate in growing vegetables and flowers in the garden and raising egg-laying chickens. This increased interest and enthusiasm, is proven by the national shortage of baby chicks this spring.
We are adding more animal and pet feed stores as dealers and are currently seeking distributors in the Midwest and Eastern United States. This is a great demonstration of the vital and essential contribution PittMoss makes to healthy plants, vegetables, flower beds, poultry and small animal bedding, and an opportunity for investors to commit to healthier food production, from produce to livestock.
