AgraFlora Organics International (CSE:AGRA,OTCPK:AGFAF) announced that construction at its automated edibles manufacturing facility is expected to be completed in the next 60 days, with approximately 75 percent of the work having been completed.
As quoted in the press release:
The Company anticipates the Winnipeg Edibles Facility will submit its Health Canada affirmation of readiness and video evidence package (the “Evidence Package”) shortly after completion of construction. The Company is working with industry-leading experts to manage the timing and quality of the Evidence Package Submission and expects the Standard Processing License to be granted at the Winnipeg’s Edibles Facility by summer 2020.
“Completing the construction and licensing of the Winnipeg Edibles Facility is a strategic priority for AgraFlora in 2020,” said Brandon Boddy, CEO of the Company. “Edibles have only been broadly available to Canadian consumers starting in 2020 and the industry is still struggling to manage quality and inventory levels. Our team in Winnipeg has a century of candy making experience, and our facility is designed to produce high-quality, consistently dosed edibles using smart automation investments to reduce costs as much as possible. Once licensed, we expect to be disruptive in the edibles space.”
