LAS VEGAS, NV, December 31, 2018 – International Spirits and Beverage Group Inc. (OTCQB:ISBG) (“ISBG” or the “Company”), a top-tier brand incubator in the Global Wine & Spirits market, and Bengala Technologies LLC, (“Bengala”), a development firm specializing in tailored technology solutions with expertise in blockchain and distributed ledger technology – together, the ISBG-Bengala Blockchain Project (the “Project”) – are proud to introduce the Project’s Commitment to Sustainability as an embedded principle driving our logistics and supply chain management platform.
Our philosophy in managing supply chains includes, at its center, the idea of creating value directly for the local economies that serve as raw input sources as well as those involved in the transformation, distribution, and sale of those raw inputs and their related products.
This is at the heart of how we intend to support and power additional growth in the communities that sit at the root of the supply base.
‘Shared value’ is a durable and irreplaceable asset in a business relationship. And this ethical principle extends to all of our relationships and ultimately drives sustainability. This supports the creation of value for individuals in those communities, as well as businesses and society at large. That value is the best assurance of sustainability at the environmental, social, and economic levels.
Our process has been built from the ground up to respect the impact made by every step of the supply chain process, from farmers and raw input production to transformation, distribution, and at the final end-market interface.
We will also integrate into our platform critical environmental and social sustainability measures because our platform users will see a clear commercial benefit in being on the right side of that equation in all of their endeavors.
One of our project leaders, Arnaldo A. Detrés, CEO of Bengala Technologies, LLC, commented, “We have technology and a philosophy that allows us to help our raw product suppliers in maintaining a certain level of efficiency and quality in their services by providing aid with promising technologies that help to strengthen the whole.”
To ensure we are able to achieve these goals, we will pursue the following steps:
Meeting Local Standards. Integrated into our processes will be an assessment system built to enhance supplier sustainability and productivity in a manner that respects the impact that operations have in the local community. This includes integration with local standard-bearing institutions.
Creating Better Partners. When necessary, we will administer programmatic help to encourage and educate local suppliers in the direction of more sustainable practices and processes.
Supporting Local Businesses. We believe in the unequivocal value of the “Win-Win” relationship when it comes to local supplier relationships and the impact supply chains have on local communities.
Building a Foundation for Success. Woven throughout this commitment, one principle guides our philosophy above all others: the best logistics operations actively ensure their own survival and prosperity over the long run by working with nature, communities, and business partners so that all facets of the equation advance together.
Sustainable agricultural practices ensure the long-term success of a supply chain in terms of its raw inputs. The best way to achieve that sustainability is to partner with local farmers and their communities. This promotes economic, environmental, and social sustainability and serves as a foundation for success.
We further plan to join the Sustainable Agriculture Initiative Platform (SAI), the main food and drink industry initiative supporting the development of sustainable agriculture worldwide. This will serve as a primary point of contact with our collaborators and peers as we work together to ensure a sustainable and prosperous future for all of our partners, suppliers, friends, and fellow human beings.

Origin Protocol Launches Fundraiser to Help Find Vaccine for COVID-19
Origin Protocol is selling KN95 masks at cost and shipping them to anyone in the US within 3-5 days. This is just one of the ways Origin is turning its rewards campaign into a fundraiser to support the Coalition for Epidemic Preparedness Innovations (CEPI) — a foundation that is working to accelerate the development of vaccines against COVID-19. CEPI first launched in 2017 with initial funding from the governments of Germany, Japan, Norway and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. To combat the COVID-19 outbreak, CEPI has been moving with great urgency in coordination with the World Health Organization (WHO), who is leading the development of a coordinated international response.
“At Origin, we admire the critical work that CEPI is doing for people during this outbreak, and are dedicated to support its mission in accelerating the development of vaccines against COVID-19. With successful development and equitable access of these vaccines, we can fight COVID-19 together,” said Max Unger, Head of Community at Origin Protocol.
