The Green Organic Dutchman Holdings has received orders from Alberta, Manitoba and Nova Scotia to be shipped this month, expanding its Canadian distribution footprint. The company is also launching two new strains in Ontario as well as the world's first organic cannabis certification program for budtenders.
"By expanding its distribution to these three provinces, TGOD is gaining access to 340 new retail locations, in addition to Ontario's current 24 stores," the team with the company explains. "In parallel, the company is launching two new strains in Ontario, Discover (Chocolope) and Tranquility (Zombie Kush). TGOD expects to deliver these new orders this month and plans to continue expanding to other provinces as well as adding new strains and product formats as its production volume increases."
"As we continue scaling up our operations, we are now in a position to start distributing our premium certified organic cannabis products to additional provinces as well as launching new strains," commented Mike Gibbons, Vice President of Sales at TGOD.
World's First Organic Cannabis Certification Program for Budtenders
Additionally, TGOD is rolling out one of the world's first organic cannabis certification programs for budtenders with the objective of raising awareness around the benefits of organic cannabis. "This national education program is being delivered in-person at every retail location distributing TGOD products; over 150 budtenders have already been certified in Ontario alone. To complement the program, TGOD is also hosting in-store activations across the country, elevating the retail experience of Canadian consumers by helping them understand the benefits of buying a premium organic cannabis product. By the end of 2019, TGOD will have hosted 40 in-store activations.
"Organic isn't an adjective, it is a fundamentally different consumer habit where people want to have transparency about where their products are coming from and what goes into them," commented Drew Campbell, Head of Marketing at TGOD. "We want the first question for a budtender to ask when somebody goes in-store to be: Would you prefer organic?"
