One of the largest hemp companies in the USA officially revealed its first international expansion. Southwest Alberta's Medicine Hat was chosen as this very first site.
"We have secured acres of land to build our 100K square foot Health Canada approved vertically integrated hemp extraction and purification facility," announced Kashif Shan, CEO of Folium Biosciences. "Months of planning has gone into these momentous preparations and the community of Medicine Hat has been nothing but accommodating and gracious."
Kashif Shan was Mayor Clugston's special guest at the annual State of the City address, hosted by the Medicine Hat & District Chamber of Commerce, as well as Kiwanis International on Tuesday, January 29.
"Our PCR rich products help so many people in their daily lives, and while this partnership is crucial, I never want us to lose sight of that," Shan added. "I am more than confident that together we will be able to help so many in need."
"The fact that Folium Biosciences chose Medicine Hat as their first location in Canada is such an accomplishment for our City," says Ted Clugston, Mayor of Medicine Hat. "The scale of their operation will have a huge impact on our community".
