Rodents Away Odor Free - Nova Scotia Product Launch
Ken Hassman grew up on a Southern Saskatchewan farm where his passion grew for community and the business of farming. Ken’s career path allowed him to travel and build lifelong relationships with his customers. The discovery of, Rodents Away Odor Free, was born out of Ken’s frustration with mice interfering with his passion for camping with his family in their travel trailer. In memory of their Fathers dedication to Rodents Away Odor Free and his desire to naturally repel mice his son’s, Todd & Tyler Hassman stepped up to grow the business. After certifying the product, updating the packaging and building a distribution network it was time to launch Rodents Away Odor Free in Canada.
