Rubicon Organics Inc. announced that its 125,000 sq. ft. licensed facility in Delta, B.C. has commenced preparation for its European Union – Good Manufacturing Practices (“EU-GMP”) certification. The EU-GMP certification is given to companies who demonstrate a high degree of precision and consistency in their manufacturing procedures, and is a requirement for the import of medical cannabis products into the European market.
"Working with Q&C, GMP consultants who have extensive experience across cannabis and international pharmaceutical industries, the BC Facility recently completed a trial audit as the first step in ensuring the correct controls and compliance are in place for European sales", the company explains.
“We expect access to EU-GMP certified organic cannabis will be a game changer for medical markets both locally and internationally,” said Jesse McConnell, Co-Founder and CEO of Rubicon Organics. “With Q&C supporting our process, we look forward to providing access to our extensive genetics and top-tier terpene profiles around the world”
Rubicon Organics anticipates the first harvest at its BC Facility in Q2 2019.
