Canopy Enters MOU with BC Liquor Distribution Branch to Supply British Columbian Market
ALDERGROVE & DELTA, BC, July 12, 2018 /CNW/ – Continuing the theme of securing major supply agreements in every Canadian province and territory with announced supply plans, Canopy Growth Corporation (TSX: WEED) (NYSE: CGC) (the “Company” or “Canopy Growth”) is proud to announce that cannabis grown in its Delta and Aldergrove facilities, its other sites across the country, and products from its CraftGrow partners will be sold in fine retailers, both government-operated and private, across the province of British Columbia post-prohibition.
Canopy Growth entered into a supply MOU with the BC Liquor Distribution Branch to make available 5,719 kg of high-quality cannabis products in the first 12-months following October 17, 2018. The quantity referenced is a delivery requirement agreed to in the MOU, not an internal allocation.
Investing in a reliable, national production footprint early has made all the difference as provincial partners assess potential supply sources. We’ve established a strong presence in BC with state-of-the-art greenhouse facilities in Delta and Aldergrove and we can’t wait to see the BC bud we’re currently growing and harvesting at both sites readily available on store shelves.
Mark Zekulin, President & Co-CEO of Canopy Growth Corp.
The Company’s supply commitments to seven provinces and one territory including New Brunswick, Newfoundland & Labrador, Prince Edward Island, Quebec, Yukon, Manitoba, Alberta, and now B.C., combine for a total of over 67,000 kilograms of premium cannabis products from whole-flower to oils and Softgels on an annualized basis.
Canopy Growth’s national production platform includes facilities in seven provinces across Canada including its two BC Tweed greenhouses which combine 3 million sq. ft. of growing space. With over 2.4 million sq. ft. of facilities actively licensed and operating across the country, and the remainder of several sites ready and awaiting licensing, development continues to ensure full licensing is achieved in the near future to ensure sufficient supply across the country.
