"Our online reviews do more than give new customers the confidence to try VINIA," said Dr. Brian Cornblatt, Chief Medical Officer.

These new customers contributed to a total order count of 53,400 total orders in the past 365 days*.

"In this past year of US expansion, we have seen a rapid acceleration of VINIA sales as we scale up our major marketing campaigns, with a mix of TV, digital, and partnerships," said CEO Ilan Sobel. "We're establishing VINIA as a leader in health supplements, backed by science, and now validated by thousands of verified customer reviews. Our 2023 sales growth target is aggressive, and passing the 2,000-review mark is a significant milestone towards our goal of being a best-in-class wellness brand."

BioHarvest has also announced that the five NFL prospects cited in an April 27, 2023, news release as members of "Team VINIA" were all either drafted or signed during this past weekend's 2023 NFL Draft.
