Delta greenhouse secures major cannabis deal

A large-scale Delta greenhouse operation which has converted to cannabis has secured a major contract with the Ontario government.

Pure Sunfarms Corp. announced it has entered into a supply agreement with the Ontario Cannabis Retail Corporation, operating as the Ontario Cannabis Store, to supply the OCS with Pure Sunfarms-branded cannabis products for the non-medical market in the Province of Ontario.

“Pure Sunfarms’ supply agreement with the OCS – our first with a provincial government distributor – is a tremendous step forward for our organization, putting our branded quality products on the OCS website and soon retailers’ store shelves, and into the hands of our consumers,” said Mandesh Dosanjh, president and CEO of Pure Sunfarms, in a news release.

Emerald Health Therapeutics Inc. has a joint venture with the East Ladner greenhouse Village Farms called Pure Sunfarms.

 

The firm recently announced it received from Health Canada yet another amendment to its cultivation licence for its greenhouse, which used to grow vegetables. The additional 138,000 square feet brings Pure Sunfarms’ total licensed cannabis production area to approximately 825,000 square feet.

Pure Sunfarms also applied for another 206,000 square feet of growing area, which is under review by Health Canada. That further amendment would expand the operation’s permitted production area to just over 1.03 million square feet. The remaining approximately 69,000 square feet of the facility is being converted to processing and extraction activities. The Pure Sunfarms Delta greenhouse will be one of the single largest cannabis growing facilities in the world, the company says.
