Founded in 2020 (previously known as Janani.life), Kindly is a holistic sexual performance and a lifestyle brand focussed on the sexual & reproductive health space. They are addressing the gap in the market of lifestyle disorders, sexual performance, and hormonal wellness – a $8b market opportunity - with their support and product range. The YCombinator (W22 cohort) backed start-up, Kindly is Asia’s only diagnostics-first lifestyle brand offering a full-stack sexual wellness solution, including at-home diagnostics, convenient expert consultations, and doctor-backed supplements. Kindly is the only brand in India to offer at-home-semen tests that are not only focused on fertility issues but also on lifestyle disorders, which are extremely common among men and women today. Kindly is addressing a marketplace of 130 million users in India alone who will benefit from Kindly’s full stack approach by early diagnosis of lifestyle disorder, expert doctor consultations and research backed supplements to overcome and manage lifestyle disorders such as sexual dysfunctions, low vitality, PCOS and menstrual pain. Nilay Mehrotra, Founder & CEO of Kindly, commented: “We’ve attracted investors from around the world and this bodes well for our expansion into markets beyond India. The whole team is passionate about empowering people to explore their sexual wellness safely and confidently and this shows in our community engagement and growth numbers. We’re breaking new ground with an all-inclusive approach to lifestyle and sexual disorders, something which hasn’t been done before. The funding round wil elevate us from from a disruptor brand to a market leader in the lifestyle and sexual wellness market. With fresh product lines, a tech-enabled platform for easy access to our services, and our intention for global expansion, we are poised to enter the next phase of our growth.” Kindly’s offerings are categorised into KindlyHis and KindlyHers to address the needs of both genders. KindlyHis is predominantly leading the conversation about sexual performance and sperm health whereas KindlyHers focuses on women’s holistic wellness offering products and services for sexual, menstrual, and hormonal wellness. Both men and women face sexual wellness concerns but due to lack of awareness and social stigma associated with these problems they refrain from seeking help. Erectile dysfunction, premature ejaculation and loss of libido are one of the major concerns for men. According to research, Prevalence of female sexual dysfunction increased with age, from 22% in women aged <20 years to 75.7% in women aged 40-50 years. Most women suffer from painful sex, vaginusmus, vaginal dryness and loss of libido but in most cases it is ignored due lack of knowledge. Kindly will use the capital to accelerate its growth and expansion across India and international markets. “As a growth-stage investor focused on bio health led businesses, we are excited to partner with Kindly. The wellness market has changed dramatically over the last year, and we believe the demand for at home diagnostics will only continue to grow. Kindly's diagnostics first based model is well positioned for success, and we believe it has the potential to grow” added Takeshi Kanamori, Managing Director, DG Daiwa ventures.

Beverage Industry Seems To Be Readying A Lineup of Summer Drinks For A Younger And Pandemic-Weary Consumer Demographic

Splash Beverage Group

As millennials rapidly displace Generation Xers and baby boomers as the biggest spenders in the food and beverage industry, brands are looking for new ways to stay relevant by adapting to their different tastes and habits. Meanwhile, a prolonged pandemic has given rise to its own beverage trends as consumers seek leisure and experiences that they can recreate outside of the traditional bar or restaurant setting. This summer, consumers might be ready to spend more for bolder flavors, premium ingredients and containers that can go with them on adventures they take. Subtle Notes Out, Bold Flavors In? When seltzers began sweeping the market a few years ago, they were capitalizing on demand for gentle, nuanced flavor profiles — hints of citrus and aromas of melon you found in sparkling beverages like Lacroix Group (EPA: LACR) or hard seltzers like White Claw. Now, some brands are reportedly differentiating themselves in a crowded seltzer market by moving toward bigger, single-note flavors that are more distinctive but still familiar. In February, for example, PepsiCo Inc. (NASDAQ: PEP) partnered with Boston Beer Company Inc. (NYSE: SAM) to begin slowly rolling out hard Mountain Dew, an alcoholic version of some of the brand’s most successful flavors, to capitalize on this shift toward bolder but still familiar flavors. The news of the hard mountain dew launch came just months after Boston Beer’s sales of its Truly Hard Seltzer, a subtler seltzer, tanked in 2021. Similarly, Splash Beverage Group (NYSEAMERICAN: SBEV) reported that its sales skyrocket 71% year over year last summer of its Pulpoloco Sangria, the company’s wine cocktail featuring fresh, fruity flavors and bold spices infused in authentic Spanish wines. The “bold yet refreshing” sangria is sold in eco-friendly and portable packaging, capitalizing on other beverage trends, which makes the company optimistic that this summer will see a similar boost to the brand’s sales. The new biodegradable cans are made from 8 layers of paper, making them sturdy yet environmentally conscientious. Quality and Simplicity In Ingredients As younger drinkers shift toward drinking less than older consumers, they’re also seemingly placing increased importance on the ritual and indulgence of the experience. That is, when they do drink, they want quality ingredients and beverages that are free of artificial additives. They want distinctive beverages they can savor. That may be leading to a rise in natural flavor additives and premium ingredients. SALT Tequila, for example, is made from 100% blue agave plants, cultivated for 7 to 10 years before harvesting. Each of the three flavored tequilas uses natural ingredients to infuse those notes of citrus, berry or chocolate. On-the-Go Packaging As temperatures climb, pandemic-weary Americans are clamoring to make up for lost time by getting outdoors and meeting friends for new adventures. A 2022 Trends Report released by Viator revealed that 48% of all bookings made on the site last year were outdoor experiences, a major increase compared to 2019. The largest growth was seen in water sports, which rose 311% over 2019 levels as well as sailing and boating, which rose 122%. Those trends reveal an interest in experiences that balance adventure with leisure — lounging on the deck of a sailboat as you hop from island to island or relaxing on the beach after an afternoon riding jet skis. That uptick in leisurely outdoor adventures is also reportedly driving demand for more portable packaging for premium beverages. Some consumers say they want a sense of luxury and quality but also the convenience of single-serving containers and lighter-weight alternatives to glass bottles. The 2021 launch of Copa di Vino, single-servings of premium Oregon wines, hopes to help answer that demand with a 100% recyclable plastic package that comes with a splash-proof lid. The packaging is meant to allow consumers to toss wine in their bags for a hike or beach day without worrying about corkscrews or packing extra glasses. Splash Beverage Group, an innovator in the beverage industry, owns a growing portfolio of alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverage brands including Copa di Vino wine by the glass, SALT flavored tequilas, Pulpoloco sangria, and TapouT performance hydration and recovery drink. Splash’s strategy is to rapidly develop early-stage brands already in its portfolio as well as acquire and then accelerate brands that have high visibility or are innovators in their categories. Led by a management team that has built and managed some of the top brands in the beverage industry and led sales from product launch into the billions, Splash is rapidly expanding its brand portfolio and global distribution.

90% Of Consumers Under 40 Report Wanting Healthier, Eco-Friendlier Options — This Plant-Based Brand Says It’s Delivering

Simply Better Brands

Together, the companies state they have gamified Simply Better’s new line of CBD wellness products sold under the PureKana brand. The natural, non-GMO line of CBD-infused tinctures, capsules, topical treatments and gummies are available in a virtual storefront inside New Frontier’s Odds City. This year’s Deloitte Global 2022 Gen Z & Millennial Survey reported that 90% of younger consumers surveyed were making at least some effort to reduce their impact on the environment. At least 64% were willing to pay more for more sustainable or healthier products — opting for clean ingredients and plant-based products to fuel a more active and eco-conscious lifestyle. As younger consumers take a more holistic approach to health, wellness and the environment, companies like Simply Better Brands (OTCQB: PKANF) (TSXV: SBBC) say they are committed to delivering products that are meant to hit all the right notes: clean, all-natural ingredients, a focus on well-being and driven by a sense of purpose. Against Arguably Difficult Odds, Younger Consumers Still Shop With Purpose What perhaps stands out even more about the Deloitte report’s findings is the dedication of millennials and Gen Z to healthier, more environmentally conscious consumer habits. Compared to previous generations, millennials and Gen Z consumers are less financially secure. As wages seemingly stagnate and the cost of living increases, making those more informed and eco-conscious choices gets harder. Around half of Gen Z and millennial workers are living paycheck to paycheck. Over a third are working more than one job to cover costs. Despite these extreme financial constraints, these younger consumers are reportedly still prioritizing healthier, plant-based foods and brands across categories that are more purpose-driven. Often, delivering on that mission means prioritizing healthy, natural ingredients — even in beauty products, where 45% of millennials and 46% of Gen Z shoppers say healthy ingredients are among the top factors they consider when choosing what to buy. Simply Better Brands Says It Delivers Clean, Natural, Plant-Based Products Across An Expanding Portfolio Of Categories Simply Better Brand’s portfolio of brands offers products across the plant-based, holistic wellness and lifestyle categories. Its TRUBAR line of plant-based protein bars is aimed at consumers who want natural ingredients and balanced nutrition in a convenient, on-the-go snack. TRUBAR adheres to the strict nutritional guardrails of dairy-free, soy-free, no sugar alcohol, vegan, non-GMO and gluten-free expected by loyal consumers of the brand. Meanwhile, the company’s line of clean label beauty and skincare products No B.S. emphasizes safe, clean, science-based formulas for the skin by banning roughly 1,500 ingredients from its portfolio. Products are sold in recyclable packaging that minimizes waste, and the brand regularly partners with nonprofits and organizations driving social change like the She Recovers Foundation. The company reports selling across a range of channels, including e-commerce platforms, like Amazon.com Inc. (NASDAQ: AMZN) or Shopify Inc. (NYSE: SHOP) and traditional retailers like Target Corp. (NYSE: TGT), Whole Foods (NASDAQ: WFM) and Costco Wholesale Corp. (NASDAQ: COST). The cross-selling direct-to-consumer platform can also help brands reach more consumers who share their same passion for healthier choices while assisting consumers to more easily find the products and services that fit their conscious and informed buying habits. Simply Better Also Opens Shop In The Metaverse In February, Simply Better partnered with New Frontier Presents, a metaverse company in the emerging non-fungible token (NFT) and play-to-earn gaming market. The partnership signals a commitment to being truly omnichannel by breaking in early on the opportunities for metaverse shopping experiences. Odds City is a gaming ecosystem where users can earn NFTs and cryptocurrency from playing games. Now, they can spend those earnings at the virtual PureKana storefront and get real CBD wellness products delivered to their homes. Simply Better Brands Corp. manufactures and sells hemp-based cannabidiol related products in the United States. The company offers tinctures, capsules, gummies, oils, edibles, topicals, sprays, vape pens, pet treats, bath bombs, pet wellness products, and skincare and pet-care products as well as tees, hoodies, beanies, caps, and other related products. Simply Better Brands Corp. distributes its products through e-commerce website PureKana.com, as well as through retail stores, including larger retail chains and small independent retailers; wholesalers; and various brick and mortar retailers. The company was formerly known as PureK Holdings Corp. The company was founded in 2017 and is headquartered in Vancouver, Canada. Simply Better Brands Corp. is a subsidiary of Heavenly Rx Ltd.
