The Flowr Corporation Chairman and Chief Strategist Steve Klein was interviewed by IG Kahner Global. In the interview, Klein discussed his entry into the cannabis industry, his relationship with company CEO Tom Flow, and how his company stands out against other Canadian licensed producers.
“The big differentiators for Flowr are our rare ability to grow premium product and to do it efficiently at a profit. That focus drives everything we do,” said Klein. “Tom and his team have the ability to build cultivation facilities that are super clean – they meet pharmaceutical manufacturing standards – and run very efficiently. So the cannabis we grow will meet Health Canada purity standards.”
Klein also discussed the company’s partnership with Scotts Miracle-Gro as well as the company’s build out of the Kelowna campus, which includes a 50,000 square-foot R&D facility that will be run in conjunction with Scotts Miracle-Gro. This was supplemented by insight regarding the company’s upcoming IPO in September.
“On the financial side, we’re working to complete a process that will lead to us being listed on the TSX Ventures exchange,” said Klein. “That should be done by September. On the operating side, we’re completing the build out of Kelowna this year, including the Hawthorne research center. It’s about 20 percent operational now but we need to finish it and ramp up through 2019 to a 14,000 kilograms per year production rate.”
