AU: "We made substantial progress with construction of our first medical cannabis greenhouse"

Cannaponics breaks ground with construction of its first, 3,600 square metre, greenhouse facility, in readiness to harvest its first crop within 12 months.

The greenhouse building will be completed by the end of April 2022 and will be commissioned with the latest in medical cannabis cultivation and fertigation technology, with the first crop to be planted before the end of December 2022.

Managing Director Rod Zakostelsky is excited by the progress of the construction, and the impact the business is already having on the Collie community, with more than 15 local jobs created to support the construction phase, and with many more job and training opportunities to follow over the next 12 months.

Following four years of planning, and with the advice and support from leading industry experts, the building of the first greenhouse is a proud moment and a significant milestone in the Cannaponics journey.

Cannaponics are looking forward to continuing to accelerate against its objectives, which includes deep involvement with the local community. Cannaponics is supporting the transition from reliance on the coal industry, toward a new, high value, sustainable industry that has potential to make a significant difference not only in the Australian pharmaceuticals manufacturing industry, but across the broader Collie community in terms of job creation and other economic and social benefits.

Cannaponics value and mission to support People, Planet and Profits is woven into the fabric of the company, with the aim of enhancing people's lives and encouraging social equity for a cleaner planet and ensuring that profits will evoke emotive change for the future.
