Markham, Ontario, Oct. 10, 2018 — The Flowr Corporation (TSXV: FLWR), through its subsidiary The Flowr Group (Okanagan) Inc. (collectively “Flowr” or the “Company”), announced today that it has shipped all product requested in the initial purchase order the Company received from the Nova Scotia Liquor Corporation (“NSLC”). The NSLC is the provincial authority that controls adult recreational-use cannabis sales and retail outlets in Nova Scotia.
“We’re very pleased the NSLC recognized our ability to deliver high quality cannabis in the volumes it needs to meet the current demands of Nova Scotian consumers,” said Tom Flow, Flowr’s Co-Founder and President. “Flowr’s cultivation team has been ramping up production in preparation for October 17 and we remain confident that we can meet all our commitments to our provincial partners and be well positioned for increased demand in the future.”
Flowr was named a supplier to the NSLC in August and received its initial purchase order from the Province shortly thereafter. The Company also has been named a supplier to authorities in Ontario and British Columbia for both its Flowr brand products and through its partnership with Ace Valley, a new cannabis brand from the team behind Ace Hill Beer.
Flowr anticipates fulfilling its initial purchase orders from the Ontario Cannabis Store and the British Columbia Liquor Distribution Board in full prior to October 17th. The Company also recently announced it had begun sales of its FlowrRx branded medical cannabis products nationally through clinics and the Flowr website.
Flowr is headquartered in Markham, Ontario and is constructing both an 85,000 square foot cultivation facility and, through a strategic R&D alliance with Hawthorne Canada Limited, a subsidiary of The Scotts Miracle-Gro Company (NYSE: SMG), a 50,000 square foot research and development facility in Kelowna, British Columbia.
The Flowr Corporation (TSXV: FLWR), through its subsidiaries, is a vertically integrated Canadian cannabis company focused on the natural science of cannabis. With head offices in Markham, ON and production in Kelowna, BC, Flowr builds and operates large-scale, GMP designed cultivation facilities utilizing its own patented growing systems. Flowr’s investment in research and development is expected to enable its cultivation team to supply patients with consistent, high-quality medicinal cannabis. With a sense of craftsmanship and a spirit of innovation, Flowr is also well positioned with a line of premium quality cannabis products for the upcoming adult-use market.
