ARMSTRONG FACILITY

Construction of Lotus Ventures Inc (CSE:J) initial production facility, at our recently purchased 23-acre location in Armstrong, BC is scheduled to complete in early September 2018. The building is 22,500 square feet with an annual production capacity 2,000KG per year of top-shelf cannabis. In September, the Lotus team will prepare its “evidence package” for Health Canada that will enable issuance of a cultivation license. After successfully testing two crop cycles, Lotus will be granted its “Sales License”.


Preparations for the commissioning of the building and the commencement for operations has begun. Senior staff has been recruited and initiated work on translating our standard operating procedures into operating reality. The positions of quality assurance manager, master grower, first grower, production manager, quality assurance assistant have been filled and will begin training in August. During September staff will be installing and initiating the IT systems including product tracking, record keeping and building control systems. Preparation will also begin for cultivation with plant material acquisition scheduled for October.

FACILITY EXPANSION PLANS

The company has completed initial planning and budgeting for the doubling of production with the expansion of facility #1. The expansion will be adjoining the facility and will utilize production and processing areas, as well as, other common services. We anticipate submitting for building permit in September and commencement of construction in the fall. The expansion will bring the company’s total production to 4,000 KG per year of top-shelf cannabis.
