A newly licensed producer is all set to start production and cultivation at a state-of-the-art Montreal facility.
Last week, Emerald Plants Heath Source (EPHS), together with Joint Venture Partner, Merritt Valley Cannabis, announced that it received its license for Access to Cannabis for Medical Purposes Regulation (ACMPR) from Health Canada.
While phase one of construction on the 1.2 million square foot campus in Merritt, BC won’t begin until 2019 (with a scheduled open for 2020), EPHS’ Montreal cultivation and sales plans have commenced as per Health Canada’s requirements.
“Our vision is to be unique, and the EPHS business model is built on simplicity and focus. It is our objective to build more efficiently and deliver cannabis to the under-supplied Canadian and global markets,” said Gianfranco Bentivoglio, EPHS CEO.
Steve Perry, former Vice President of Energy and Major Projects for The Green Organic Dutchman Holdings Ltd. and current CEO of Merritt Valley Cannabis will help scale the company’s BC facility which will be capable of producing in excess of 100,000 kilograms of cannabis product over the next five years.
Directors and owners of Daily Hive own shares of EPHS Holdings.
