APH’s Mt. Elephant brand was developed to focus on capturing the demand for high-quality, plant-based ‘superfood’ products – with Australian-farmed hemp used in all our products.
This latest agreement with Coles represents APH’s largest retail distribution agreement with any retail partner, and we are proud to see Coles recognise the Mt. Elephant product range. We look forward to further potential agreements in the future as we further our Company’s development in becoming a producer, manufacturer, and distributor of premium hemp-based products.
