MIAMI, FLORIDA AND TORONTO, ONTARIO – October 27, 2021 — Flora Growth Corp. (NASDAQ: FLGC) (“Flora” or the “Company”), a leading all-outdoor cultivator and manufacturer of global cannabis products and brands, announced today that its Flora Beauty division has signed an agreement with SHOWFIELDS to feature its two skincare brands, MIND Naturals and Awe (Ô), at its flagship location in South Beach, Miami, as well as through its online store. The campaign launch is expected to begin November 8th, 2021.
SHOWFIELDS is a revolutionary retail concept that is built to engage and inspire the journey of discovery through revolving experiences with the brands and communities, creating a stage for immersive storytelling to unlock new offline channels for growth. The inclusion of Flora Beauty’s brands underscores the appeal of these new brands and is expected to create significant awareness with the American consumer in advance of the holiday season.
“We are very excited to see a forward-thinking retailer like SHOWFIELDS seek out our brands for their newest flagship location. Beyond the ability to generate additional revenues, we are thrilled to be a part of this innovative concept that reimagines experiential retail and provides us the opportunity to tell the compelling stories of these brands,” said Luis Merchan, President and CEO of Flora Growth. “As mission-driven brands, the ability to gain exposure and credibility with a partner like SHOWFIELDS validates the cultural relevance of MIND Naturals and Awe (Ô) and speaks to their ultimate potential as we continue to increase market awareness with the U.S. consumer.”
This opportunity was realized on the back of major recognition for the Mind Naturals brand at the 2021 Cosmoprof North America (“CPNA”) event. Specifically, MIND Naturals’ CBD Rich Moisturizer was selected for its innovation in biodegradable packaging and featured in a report on the most trendsetting products from CPNA exhibitors produced in collaboration with renowned international beauty trend forecasting authority, BEAUTYSTREAMS.
SHOWFIELDS is the ultimate curator of the most interesting brands, stories, and unique experiences from around the world. With its mission to bring inspiration in reach to all that pass through its threshold, the brand is empowering creators to unlock retail as a channel and run “retail campaigns” using its proprietary digital and physical platform. The retail concept’s flagship location is located at 11 Bond Street, New York City, with its second location recently opened in December 2020 at 530 Lincoln Road, Miami, and pop-up experiential locations such as SHOWFIELDS x Los Angeles in Century City launching this year.
