The safety of every employee is a priority. We are providing our team members with all the responsible guidance and tools to protect the health of their family, co-workers, and themselves. Our Production Plant and Operations Team are in good spirits and are excited about this opportunity to serve health in a bottle to more humans.”

“Without our distributors and retailers, we would not be able to serve as many consumers nationwide,” says Ryne O’Donnell, Founder. “We appreciate our partners and express our gratitude for their assistance in contributing to the availability of Sol-ti on the shelf.”
“We continue to be financially responsible at this time with a healthy balance sheet, credit, and equity resources available to us. We will continue to source local produce as well as adapting to triple our supply chain. Some elements in our supply chain require time to ramp up – which we have invested considerable capital to continue to fulfill our orders. These elements include extraordinary freight expenses such as air freighting raw materials to expedite them so that we can fulfill customer orders on time. Our material suppliers have granted us access to rapidly increasing purchase orders from us for which we are extremely grateful. We are stopping at nothing to ensure business continuity,” says O’Donnell. “The Sales Team has stopped air travel, but they are not limiting the time in retail stores to support our partners and distribution partners so that we can ensure the shelves are as fully stocked as possible at all times.”
Sol-ti has plans to continue production at a rapid rate and will continue to operate unless it is not humanly possible to fulfill orders. From a standpoint of serving others and financial stability and strength in the company, Sol-ti is honored to be in this position. They are producing more bottles than ever in their history, and they will continue to send Sol-ti out to distributors and retail partners as fast as they can.
