The urgency to address the fentanyl crisis is more critical than ever, particularly in a country with a population of 350 million like the US. The market for fentanyl test strips, essential in venues such as music festivals, concerts, addiction houses, and education centers, is vast and largely untapped. With too many lives lost to overdose, the need for widespread availability and use of fentanyl test strips is evident. Safety Strips is at the forefront of this battle, offering a reliable solution that meets the public’s growing demand for safety measures against fentanyl poisoning. This initiative is not just a business opportunity; it’s a public health imperative that Safety Strips and Safe Supply Streaming are committed to leading.

Geoff Benic, CEO of Safety Strips, emphasizes the company’s mission, “We are resolutely focused on commercializing our business and building a CPG brand that earns consumer trust. Our goal is to ‘own the shelf’ in our industry, committing to aid governments and communities in their harm reduction efforts. Our rapid progress, from early packaging arrival to promising retailer discussions in the U.S., heralds a promising future for Safety Strips and its mission.”
