UK: MMJ firm opens up second round of funding with ambition to create 50 jobs

Castle Donington-based medicinal cannabis producer and distributor Dalgety has announced its second round of investment – with a plan to create 50 jobs.

Dalgety was granted a Home Office license to begin commercial cultivation and distribution of its product earlier this year. The firm says that demand for medicinal cannabis in the UK continues to rise, with the first ever parliamentary debate on the topic held just last month.

David Mundell, MP for Dumfriesshire, Clydesdale and Tweeddale, highlighted the sector’s future impact, with a potential £1bn contribution to the UK economy and the creation of 100,000 new jobs.

James Leavesley, chief operating officer at Dalgety, said: “We’ve been working hard to push forward with our plans to harness this rapidly expanding market. With our state-of-the-art facility, the licence approval and now our first crop growing, Dalgety’s position is strong.
