Retail Sales Grow, Alongside the Pumpkins!
As PittMoss heads for the 4 quarter finishing line, we have some great news to share with you on the retail front.
Our October retail sales shot up 147.76% from last year at this time, and we surpassed our goal-double projection by 23.80%!
Also, PittMoss has positive updates on our partnership and trial results!
Wallace Organic Wonder (WOW) founder, Ron Wallace came in second place at the 2020 Frerichs Farm Weigh-Off in Rhode Island. Although his pumpkin growth was challenged by the early-August heat and humidity wave, his pumpkin weighed in at 2,054.00 lbs! He credited PittMoss to overcome the weather issues and participate in this competition! http://www.worldclassgardening.com/products/seeds/pumpkin.
Two other successful trials using PittMoss came from the second cannabis trial after the first showed a 12% yield increase.
The second large-scale Roost poultrey bedding trial is underway after the first trial showed an 8-12% yield increase in the chicken’s size or approx. ¼ to ½ pounds more as they digest Roost better than usual wood chips. Also, they experience less sores and ulcers on their feet, and the bird loss reduced by 5% overall.
Lastly, PittMoss submitted our application for a grant with The Small Business Innovation Research (or SBIR) program is a United States Government program, coordinated by the Small Business Administration, intended to help small businesses with 500 or less employees conduct research and development (R&D). It is a highly competitive program so PittMoss is looking forward to this possible outcome.
Its this kind of momentum the team at PittMoss strives for to continue “growth” as we look to an even more successful 2021!
