Mississauga, ON, August 24, 2020 – Fusion Nutrition Inc. (“FUSION”), a leading sports nutrition company founded in 1998 and a recent acquisition of Sire Bioscience Inc. (“SIRE”) (CSE:SIRE) (OTC:BLLXF) (FSE:BR1B) (“Sire” or the “Company”) has filed four new NPN applications with Health Canada, strengthening an already-robust development pipeline.
What is an NPN?
Once Health Canada has assessed a product and decided it is safe, effective, and of high quality, it issues a product license along with an eight-digit Natural Product Number (NPN), which must appear on the label. This number lets the public know the product has been reviewed and approved by Health Canada. In a market flooded with health supplements – some legitimate, some not – it is also an added assurance of quality.
FUSION currently holds 30 NPNs, which are on the market today. The addition of these four will greatly support the brand strategy and architecture.

“These high-specification products will provide an ultra-premium supplement offering in the field of optimal human performance,” Pakulski states. “When Health Canada approves these offerings for sale in Canada, I’ll share my rationale for their development and how they’ll help athletes outside the current market offerings.”
Adapting to Meet Evolving Consumer Needs
For people who already use and love FUSION products, this will drive even greater brand loyalty. Meanwhile, the buzz around the new offerings will also help FUSION reach new audiences looking for safe, effective products legally backed by Health Canada.
In short, FUSION’s expanded portfolio will be a win-win; beneficial for both consumers and the company. Its focus on innovation helped establish FUSION in 1998, and will continue to set the brand apart in the years to come.
Founded in 1998, FUSION is a Canadian-based, leading supplement company with national distribution. It currently hosts multiple brands, including some of the fastest-growing supplements in Canada and numerous category leaders sold in Canada's top five retailers. FUSION products are developed using the latest research available, with the goal of providing maximum efficacy by supporting the human body in its own natural processes.

The land parcel includes 50 acres of prime horticultural land, with a 160,000 sq. ft. facility of combined greenhouse and indoor space.
