NEW YORK — Nearly four years after licensing his North American business to Johnson & Johnson Consumer Cos. Inc., George Korres is back in the U.S. and he is brimming with ambitious plans.
Earlier this week, Korres, a cofounder of Korres Natural Products, said the two companies had agreed to end the licensing agreement in North America, effective Dec. 28. In an interview Tuesday, Korres reiterated that the breakup was amicable. “What I can say is that the relationship is great and we highly appreciate the efforts J&J has made to support the brand.”
