Maricann GMP Certification Paves Way for European Exports

Maricann Group Inc. is Awarded GMP Certification

TORONTO, April 30, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Maricann Group Inc. (CSE:MARI)(FRANKFURT:75M)(OTCQB:MRRCF)(“Maricann” or the “Company”), is pleased to announce that the Company is now part of an exclusive group of Canadian Licensed Producers to be Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) certified in accordance with the European Medicines Agency’s GMP standards.

GMP standards are regarded as the highest assurance of quality and safety a pharmaceutical manufacturer can receive. It is a rigorous process that Maricann initiated in Q4 of 2017 when German health inspectors visited its current Langton, Ontario facility for a thorough review of the operations. With today’s announcement, Maricann becomes only the 6th Canadian producer of medical cannabis to be awarded this distinction.

EMA-GMP certification of our cultivation facility in Canada demonstrates further progress at Maricann. External validation of our operations provides comfort to our patients and consumers that we exceed industry standards. Our commitment to total quality, from origination to finished product is now certified.

Ben Ward, CEO

This certification allows the Company to export dried cannabis flower into the rapidly growing medical cannabis markets of the EU. While governments decide how to license and regulate production within their own jurisdictions on European soil, companies with the ability to export are at a distinct advantage to capitalize in these markets where a significant shortage of product exists.
