(Palm Beach, FL) - Vegalab, Inc. (OTCQB: VEGL). On January 7, 2018, Vegalab, Inc. ("Vegalab") entered into a Master Distribution Agreement with Stanislaus Farm Supply ("Stanislaus"), a member of Winfield United, as a master distributor for California and Nevada.

The initial term of the distribution agreement is five years, and the agreement provides for an annual minimum volume of product purchases with a total annual contract value of approximately $13,000,000.
