Pommies has been issued a micro-processing licence from Health Canada for its manufacturing facility located in the Greater Toronto Area. With this licence, Valens' active manufacturing platform now extends from Western to Eastern Canada, increasing speed-to-market capabilities while optimizing distribution cost-savings and efficiencies.
The GTA Facility provides Valens with an additional 30,000 square feet of licensed production and manufacturing space. "The facility is right-sized for the Canadian cannabis industry today and was designed with ample space for expansion if and when required, with minimal additional capital expenditures," the Valens team stated.
The facility is positioned north of Toronto and near Pearson International Airport, providing optimal shipping into Canada's largest markets while utilizing significant amounts of automation.
"Despite delays caused by the pandemic, we have achieved a major milestone in our domestic expansion strategy with the receipt of this micro-processing license," said Tyler Robson, Chief Executive Officer, Co-Founder, and Chair of The Valens Company.
