Financial report summary

Management Discussion
  • Curation Foods revenues consist of revenues generated from (1) the sale of specialty packaged fresh-cut and whole processed vegetable products and salads that are washed and packaged in most cases in the Company’s proprietary BreatheWay packaging and sold primarily under the Eat Smart brand and various private labels, (2) O Olive oils and wine vinegars, and (3) Yucatan and Cabo Fresh branded guacamole and avocado products. In addition, the Curation Foods reportable business segment includes the revenues generated from the sale of BreatheWay packaging to license partners.
  • Lifecore generates revenues from the development and manufacture of HA products and providing contract development and aseptic manufacturing services to customers. Lifecore generates revenues from two integrated activities: (1) CDMO and (2) fermentation.
  • The decrease in Curation Foods’ revenues for the three months ended February 28, 2021, compared to the same period last year, was primarily due to a $16.2 million decrease in the fresh packaged salads and vegetables segment, which is primarily due to a (1) $10.5 million planned shift away from non-strategic revenue streams, including packaged vegetables in bags and trays, and (2) a $4.1 million decrease in green bean revenues driven by a decrease in demand from food service customers during the COVID-19 pandemic.
