Celebrating Success: A Look Back at Azuca’s Remarkable Journey in 2023

Coming fresh off the heels of our recent all-hands and board meetings, we’ve taken some time to reflect on the past year and wanted to share our journey with you. 2023 was a year of remarkable growth, milestones, and successes for Azuca, and we couldn’t have done it without you – our valued supporters and partners. Navigating the ever-changing and often rocky terrain of the cannabis industry, we’ve continued to push boundaries and innovate, adapting to the dynamic landscape with resilience and determination. Follow along as we celebrate some of the highlights from the past year:

✨ Innovative Product Launches: We proudly introduced two groundbreaking products: Whole-Plant ACTiVATOR® and RTD ACTiVATOR®. These game-changers have been disrupting their respective categories and setting new standards for excellence in quality and efficacy.

🌿 Partnerships and Collaborations: We continued to strengthen our network of esteemed partners, collaborating with industry leaders such as WanaAcreageGreen Thumb Industries, and Cannabist. These partnerships have been instrumental in expanding our reach across the country, allowing us to offer our innovative solutions and products to more than 25 states. With over 75 active partner accounts and growing, we are proud to work alongside these organizations to drive innovation and elevate the cannabis experience for consumers nationwide.

🏆 Recognition and Awards: Azuca received prestigious accolades throughout the year, including being named to Forbes’ annual The Cannabis 42.0 list and ranking No. 214 on the Inc. 5000 list of fastest-growing private companies in America. Plus, our Simple Syrup was a standout, winning the High Spirits Awards’ Gold Medal for Best Cannabis Liquid Additive, a testament to its flavor and quality as judged in blind tastings by industry experts. Additionally, our CEO Kim Sanchez Rael was honored with the prestigious Green Market Report Notable Leaders in Cannabis Award for her outstanding contributions to the industry.

💡 Thought Leadership: Speaking of our CEO, Kim shared her insights and expertise at key industry events such as MJBizCon, Benzinga Cannabis Capital Conference, and MJ Unpacked, offering valuable perspectives on the future of the cannabis industry.

🌎 Social Equity Initiatives: Azuca took meaningful steps towards fostering diversity and equity within the cannabis space. Our Social Equity Program aimed at empowering social equity entrepreneurs and micro-license holders, led by our inaugural Social Equity Fellow, Matha Figaro, CEO of ButACake, is just one example of our commitment to positive change.

As we embark on the journey ahead in 2024, we carry with us the lessons learned and the successes achieved in 2023.
