Canopy Growth signs letter of intent with Société des alcools du Québec Français
SMITHS FALLS, ON, Feb. 14, 2018 /CNW/ – Canopy Growth Corporation (TSX: WEED) (“Canopy Growth” or the “Company”) today announced that it has signed a letter of intent with the Société des alcools du Québec (“SAQ”) to provide the Quebec market with 12,000 kilos of high-quality cannabis annually.
This announcement marks Canopy Growth’s fourth and largest supply agreement to-date, following previous agreements with the Provinces of New Brunswick, Newfoundland and Labrador, and Prince Edward Island. Three provinces have now announced supply arrangements with Licensed Producers, all of which include Canopy Growth. The Company now has more supply commitments than any other Licensed Producer in the country.
We’ve made major investments in the Province of Québec and feel honoured to be chosen to supply the country’s second-largest province, and a region we call home, with our wide variety of cannabis products. Signing this letter of intent with SAQ further establishes our dedication to the region and our level of commitment to providing adult consumers in Québec with safe, high-quality cannabis.
