Taratera Corporation and Advanced Canna Technologies (ACT) to set up a JV to establish "Actera," a new 2,000 square meter advanced indoor cannabis cultivation facility in Bangkok, Thailand.
This strategic partnership will strengthen Taratera's capabilities in cultivation, processing, and distribution with its national retail brand (The Dispensary).

The Actera facility will be equipped with the latest and newest indoor agriculture technologies to fully control the climate and the process and to reduce overall operational costs. This includes LED lights (of Fluence Bioengineering) in all grow rooms and fully automated and controlled climate units and irrigation units from Israel. The post-harvest process will be executed under precisely tuned settings with separate rooms for drying and curing, and the air will be disinfected to provide clean, healthy, and sustainable products. This automated high-tech facility enables Actera to have a data-driven scientific cultivation process, likely leading to an annual production of 3,000 kg of consistent, premium-quality cannabis flowers.
