Vinzan Asia will service the growing cannabis market in Asia-Pacific region while Vinzan Colombia will focus primarily on genetics and distribution within the Americas.

At Vinzan International, we are executing on a global plan to service high valued markets from low-cost production regions. Our business model takes best practices from the world’s largest agriculture companies and today’s announcement solidifies another piece to that puzzle.”
