Tilray downsizes Portuguese cannabis facility, lays off 49 workers

Tilray will lay off 49 workers, as part of a downsizing project from the company based in Cantanhede, in the district of Coimbra. 

“A total of 49 jobs will be affected in the areas of production, manufacturing, quality, quality control (laboratory), cultivation, supply chain, facilities, storage, logistics, purchasing, and information technologies”, says Tilray in a press release.

The Canadian company Tilray, which opened its medical cannabis production plant in Cantanhede in 2019, currently employs around 200 workers, of which 49 will be made redundant.

“These changes, which are in line with the resizing of Tilray to respond to current economic needs and the state of the legalization processes for medical cannabis and for adult use, will take place in the next three months,” says the company in the same note.
