Content Checked Holdings, Inc. (OTCQB: CNCK) caters to the underserved marketplace for people with dietary restrictions and its associated organizations through the continued development and commercialization of the ContentChecked, MigraineChecked and SugarChecked smartphone applications. The company’s innovative apps, which are currently available on both Google Play and the Apple App Store, allow users to scan food products for food allergens and other unwanted ingredients and provides recommendations of alternative products and recipes that fit within the user’s dietary preferences.
“Born from a father’s confusion and frustration about what to feed his daughter and her friends with specific food allergies, Content Checked was founded to design and develop solutions that will positively impact individuals’ health,” Kris Finstad, chief executive officer of Content Checked, stated in a news release. “[W]e see ContentChecked as being a critical tool to newly diagnosed food allergy families just learning to read labels and finding safe foods.”
In recent years, the prevalence of potentially life-threatening food allergies has rapidly increased. According to data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the occurrence of food allergies and associated anaphylaxis increased by 18 percent between 1997 and 2007. Today, an estimated 12 million Americans suffer from food allergies, including eight percent of all children, based on a study by the Food Allergy Initiative. For Content Checked, these statistics highlight the potentially massive market appeal of its groundbreaking suite of apps moving forward.
Since being founded in 2013, Content Checked has developed a robust database of allergens, migraine triggers and food ingredients that directly correlate with food allergies or other potential health concerns, which forms the basis of its proprietary apps. This database currently features hundreds of thousands of products, and its highly scalable design will allow the company to expand its services into potentially lucrative markets around the country with limited modifications and investment.
In April, Content Checked prepared to build upon the early progress of its product suite by officially going public. This move allowed the company to secure $1.9 million in funding for the continued development and promotion of its apps. In June, Content Checked gave individual investors improved access to trade shares of the company by listing on the OTCQB exchange.
“Meeting the increased compliance and information requirements of OTCQB provides our investors greater confidence in the information disclosed by the company and ensures our commitment to accountability and transparency,” continued Finstad. “We will continue working toward our goals of uplisting in the future to the NASDAQ stock market and growing our business.”
For prospective shareholders, Content Checked represents an opportunity to invest in an early-stage company with near limitless growth potential as the company continues to scale its databases to increase the market appeal of its app suite across the country.
