SANTA BARBARA, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Acclaimed cannabis lifestyle brand Cookies will transition to an international distributor after more than a year and a half of successful partnership with HERBL, California’s leading cannabis supply chain company. During this time, the two companies worked closely to streamline Cookies’ supply chain from cultivation to retail, refine inventory, and launch new products and brands, ensuring new Cookies and Lemonnade retail stores were stocked at launch. Together, these successes prepared Cookies for its next stage of growth.
In turn, Cookies has been a key partner for feedback on HERBL’s reporting suite, Brand Partnership department, and distribution model development that extends beyond their traditional full-service model. HERBL will continue to work with Cookies and Lemonnade retailers in California, and the two companies will look forward to any opportunities to work together in new places or on new ventures in the future.
“We value our almost two-year partnership with HERBL and benefited greatly from their proven ability to help brands scale the California cannabis market,” said Parker Berling, President of Cookies.
Mike Beaudry, CEO and founder of HERBL, stated, “We feel proud of the streamlined processes and procedures we built. Together we refined the Cookies forecasting, planning and inventory positioning. The feedback and partnership from the Cookies team also helped us continue to refine our brand support and retail impact. Working with Cookies was not only a productive relationship amongst like-minded people, but a real pleasure to work with folks we now consider friends.”
