Zenabis Global has submitted its site evidence package to Health Canada for the first phase of Site A at Zenabis Langley.
According to the company, construction of Zenabis Langley’s first 50,000 square foot flower room is substantially complete, as is 49,000 square feet of support space, which includes drying and trimming rooms, processing rooms, a packaging room, offices, change rooms, and storage space. Construction of the remaining five flower rooms and additional support space (including vegetation room, cloning and mothering space), totaling 380,000 square feet, is on track for substantial completion in August 2019.
The Site Evidence Package submission is expected to be the final step required on the part of Zenabis to obtain a license to cultivate cannabis at Zenabis Langley. "We expect that the facility will have a licensed annual cultivation capacity of 9,900 kg of dried cannabis once the cultivation license is granted (the first flower room is expected to have ~50% canopy coverage due to inclusion of table infrastructure that is not included in the other five flower rooms), at which time Zenabis plans to submit a license amendment for the facility’s remaining five flower rooms representing 86,200 kg of cultivation capacity," the team with the company explains.
“Zenabis Langley’s design capacity represents more than 70% of the total annual capacity of 131,200 kg of dried cannabis that we plan to reach in the third quarter,” said Andrew Grieve, Chief Executive Officer of Zenabis. “As the expected final step in Health Canada’s cultivation licensing process, submission of the site evidence package is an important milestone. Upon completion of licensing in Zenabis Langley, together with our licensing achievements in Stellarton and Atholville this year, Zenabis expects to be a significant producer of cannabis in Canada. With existing distribution into eight provinces, one territory, a number of medical channels, and meaningful wholesale agreements and opportunities, Zenabis anticipates increased deliveries to such counterparties as harvests commence on its remaining capacity.”
