Emerald Health Therapeutics and Village Farms announced that their 50/50 joint venture for cannabis production, Pure Sunfarms, received from Health Canada its fourth amendment to the cultivation license for its Delta 3 greenhouse in Delta, BC. This amendment permits Pure Sunfarms to expand its cannabis production area to 550,000 square feet – half of the 1.1 million square foot Delta 3 production facility. The newly licensed area is expected to be in full production by mid-October of this year.
“It’s a remarkable achievement to now have 550,000 square feet – half of the 1.1 million square foot Delta 3 facility – approved for production just six months since receiving the initial cultivation license,” said Michael DeGiglio, CEO of Village Farms. “I am tremendously proud of the Pure Sunfarms team.”
“Pure Sunfarms is making great strides to achieve high-quality, low-cost cannabis production ahead of the Canadian government’s legalization of adult-use cannabis on October 17,” said Chris Wagner, CEO of Emerald.
