"We are thrilled with the rapid pace at which the Pure Sunfarms team continues to complete conversion of additional production area, as well as the rapid pace at which it has been able to secure amendments to its cultivation license to steadily expand production," said Michael DeGiglio, CEO of Village Farms. "It's a testament to the value of decades of large-scale operational experience combined with an unwavering approach to doing things the right way."
"We look forward to completing our build-out over the next months," said Chris Wagner, CEO of Emerald. "As October 17th quickly approaches, we are prepared for significant sales growth and leveraging the potential of this large, highly optimized growing facility."
Pure Sunfarms expects to have the full 1.1 million square foot Delta 3 facility, one of the single largest cannabis growing facilities in the world, converted for cannabis production by year end. The technologically-advanced Delta 3 greenhouse design is based on decades of large-scale, low-cost agricultural production experience and extensive cannabis expertise, resulting in a state-of-the-art facility with 17 grow rooms (seven of which are now licensed) optimized for year-round harvesting (more than 85 harvests annually) and an automated process line encompassing harvesting, trimming, drying and packaging.
