FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla., March 24, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Golden Grail Technology doing business as Golden Grail Beverages, (OTC: GOGY), today addressed the promotional activity that caused OTC Markets to place a "Stock Promotion Designation" alongside the company's symbol on the website.

I urge other small cap issuers to continue the fight, if you are a small cap issuer dealing with a similar situation, please contact us at are looking to gather information as to how other companies are battling the shorting issue."
