Health Products International (HPI) announced on Wednesday that it will start selling its popular herbal supplement, herbal tea, and herbal medicine, Quantum Health Products, on Amazon.com in the U.S. on March 15, 2018.
“Our products are available in over 150 countries and have been tested and approved by the FDA, and we are proud to offer them to the general public,” said David Hsieh, VP of Product Marketing and Brand Development for HPI.
“We are excited to launch these products in the United States, and are excited for our global expansion.
We are thrilled to have the support of Amazon, and look forward to continuing to grow and enhance our business.”
The launch comes as HPI is exploring the use of blockchain technology to help manage product inventory and fulfillment.
Amazon has been experimenting with blockchain technology for years, including with Prime Now.
Amazon Prime Now has recently been working with Amazon Web Services to enable payments to be made over a blockchain-based payment gateway, allowing users to pay for products directly through the platform, instead of going through third-party payment processors.
Quantum Health Products is a product line that is intended to provide a safe, natural alternative to traditional pharmaceutical products.
The company was founded in 2011 by Dr. Shan Hsie, a former president of a medical research laboratory.
Her husband, Dr. David Hsi, has extensive experience in the medicinal cannabis industry.
HPI has grown from a startup to a Fortune 500 company with over $2.5 billion in revenue.
The firm was founded by Drs.
James Chen, Daniel Li and David Yee.
