VMI intends to distribute to the residential heating market throughout the UK and Europe. The agreement marks VMI’s first European supply and is expected to generate over Euro 4 million per year.
The supply of certified pellets is marketed under the new Okanagan™ Nordics brand, which is the fourth brand in the Okanagan wood pellet family. VMI has already begun distributing the new brand to the residential heating market in the U.K. and plans to distribute to Italy and other European countries.
“This contract marks the expansion of Viridis Merchants into Europe, where we intend to replicate the successful business model that we have executed in North America,” said Christopher Robertson, CEO.
