NZ grower gets new vertical units to increase cultivation

Agrify has signed a definitive agreement to supply Ora Pharmwith a full suite of end-to-end hardware and software products to be utilized at a 5,000-square-foot facility in Auckland, New Zealand.

Ora Pharm, a licensed cultivator and distributor of medicinal cannabis, has committed to purchase 20 Vertical Farming Units (“VFUs”) that will be used to grow cannabis, as well as several extraction technologies including a C1D1 Extraction Pod, a C-15 Centrifuge Extraction System, and the CannaBeast 13 Thin Film Distillation System.

In addition, Agrify will provide access to the fully integrated Agrify Insights seed to sale automation software for five years in exchange for monthly recurring SaaS fees. All of these cultivation and extraction solutions will form a robust ecosystem to give Ora Pharm complete and precise control over the full life cycle of its botanicals from new plants to finished products and should enable Ora Pharm to achieve new operational efficiencies and better overall results.

“Quality and consistency are frequently cited as top priorities for the world’s leading cannabis operators, and it is absolutely imperative for companies like Ora Pharm that are dedicated to patient care and supplying the market with medicinal cannabis and CBD products to do everything possible to foster pleasant user experiences and repeatable results,” said Raymond Chang, CEO of Agrify. “Furthermore, for our international customers that must contend with higher Good Manufacturing Practice (“GMP”) standards, it is especially critical for them to leverage cultivation and extraction solutions that offer precise control and data collection. At Agrify, one of our core goals is to provide our customers with the tools needed to maximize quality, consistency, and yields, all at the lowest cost of production, and we believe that our cultivation and extraction solutions will be instrumental in helping Ora Pharm become a leader in the cannabis sector for many years to come. Within the last few months, we have successfully entered two new international markets, first Portugal and now New Zealand, and as cannabis liberalization and legalization movements continue to gain momentum globally, we intend to achieve even more strategic growth abroad in the future.”

“From the inception of Ora Pharm, I have placed a relentless focus on leveraging the most efficient and technologically advanced solutions to empower us to deliver premium industry products to our patients and global customers,” said Zoe Reece, Founder and CEO of Ora Pharm. “We look forward to further enhancing our capabilities in a major way with the addition of these Agrify technologies. The Agrify VFUs and clean extraction technologies will help Ora Pharm’s research and development program in the minor cannabinoids, ensuring that we are able to produce the best quality and value medicinal cannabis.”
