MYM Nutraceuticals Inc. (CSE:MYM) is pleased to announce a joint venture agreement between Southern Cross University and Solaris Nutraceuticals to commit to the development of hemp and medicinal cannabis products in the NSW Northern Rivers region that will enhance animal and human health. The agreement will pave the way for a flourishing industry built on the medicinal value of cannabis.
Vice-Chancellor Professor Adam Shoemaker said the agreement was a great step forward not just for the region, but also for consumers.
“Universities have a vital role to play as catalysts for diversification and development – creating new opportunities through 21st century industries,” said Professor Shoemaker. “Legalized cannabis products are already playing a critically important role in delivering medicines, and through innovation, have the potential to improve the lives of millions more through new medical applications and nutrition. This agreement is a great example of Southern Cross University’s commitment to engaging with industry and the community, so that we can create an environment for discovery and commercial development, driving changes in our back yard that can translate into benefits around the world.”
Professor Shoemaker signed the agreement with Mr. Michael Horsfall, CEO of Solaris Nutraceuticals, committing to a new approach that brings together the University’s internationally-recognized expertise in medicinal cannabis research with the corporate capabilities of Solaris Nutraceuticals.
The University’s Lismore campus is equipped with high-security research laboratories where researchers work with the world’s most diverse collection of cannabis seed and has already established an international reputation for botanical research. The decision of Solaris to establish a new medicinal cannabis plant in Casino, just a half hour drive from Lismore, has underscored the potential of this collaboration to yield substantial outcomes.
“This is an exciting opportunity not just for Solaris Nutraceuticals, but also for the Northern Rivers region,” said Mr. Horsfall. “The project will deliver around 300 direct jobs and make a significant impact to the local economy and raise the socio-economic profile of the Northern Rivers region. On Friday, February 2, 2018, this project received grant funding of $2.5 million from the Australian Government as part of the Regional Jobs Investment Packages program (RJIP), a grant initiative that was made available by the Department of Industry, Innovation and Science. This is a significant step forward for our project and we are very appreciative of the support we have received from federal, state and local governments. Solaris Nutraceuticals will work with the University to identify opportunities to improve the properties and quality of medicines that can be derived from cannabis. These new collaborations hold tremendous potential and we are excited to be working towards a strong future together with Southern Cross.”
