Toronto, Ontario, May 31, 2023 – Danavation Technologies Corp. (CSE:DVN, OTCQB: DVNCF) (“Danavation” or the “Company”), the only North American-founded and headquartered technology company providing micro e-paper displays, today announced a multi-store contract to install Danavation’s® Digital Smart Labels™ into eight franchised Pitou Minou & Compagnons (“PMC”) locations in Quebec that offer Global Pet Foods’ products, the largest Canadian-owned pet specialty retailer. Completion of these eight installations represents an opportunity for Danavation® to recognize up to a total estimated C$500,000 in revenue. With nearly 40 storefronts currently operating under the PMC (Global Pet Foods) banner in Quebec, and more locations opening up every year, Danavation® is afforded the potential for future growth with this brand moving forward. The first installation is expected to be completed by early August, with the remaining seven locations to be outfitted at a rate of one to two per week thereafter.
