The Green Organic Dutchman Receives Health Canada Licence Amendment for Valleyfield Hybrid Greenhouse
Toronto, ON, May 7, 2020 ‐ The Green Organic Dutchman Holdings Ltd. (the “Company” or “TGOD”) (TSX:TGOD) (US:TGODF), a leading producer of premium certified organic cannabis, is pleased to announce that it has received Health Canada’s approval for the totality of its main Valleyfield hybrid greenhouse.
With all twenty-four zones now licensed, TGOD has the flexibility to quickly expand its operations at Valleyfield as the market develops. The Company also plans to leverage parts of the newly licensed space to shift a portion of its processing activities currently being handled at Ancaster or intended to be outsourced to third parties in order to optimize costs and production timelines of its 2.0 products. This will accelerate its supply chain timelines and reduce bottlenecks in production of high-demand products such as Infusers and teas.
Designed specifically for organic growing, the facility boasts cutting-edge climate control systems, water recapture networks and LED lighting. As the market develops, TGOD intends to gradually recommence growing operations at Valleyfield which have temporarily been paused.
The licence amendment is valid until June 8, 2021 and is subject to customary terms and conditions.
