“National awareness of Jones continued to grow during the quarter as our marketing initiatives garnered significant interest from both consumers and the media. said president and chief executive Mark Murray. "As a follow up, we just rolled out a new series that features Zoltar, the widely recognized fortuneteller character. Second, the highly anticipated return of Turkey & Gravy as a special release flavor has generated a lot of buzz among fans and media across the U.S. and Canada. Unique labels and flavors remain a signature point of differentiation, and we continue to look for new and innovative ways to engage with consumers."

Separately, Murray said the company took a significant step toward launching its planned cannabis business line by signing a definitive arrangement agreement with Pinestar. Jones expects to launch its inaugural cannabis portfolio in the first quarter of 2022. The portfolio will include cannabis-infused beverages edibles, vapes and pre-rolls.
