GTEC Announces Tumbleweed Farms Evidence Package Submission to Health Canada to Confirm Readiness of Cultivation License
Kelowna, BC, May 21, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- GTEC Holdings Ltd. (TSX-V:GTEC) (OTCQB:GGTTF) (FRA:1BUP) (“GTEC” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that its wholly owned subsidiary Grey Bruce Farms (the “Facility”) has completed its build-out and submitted its Affirmation of Readiness and Video Evidence Package (the “Evidence Package”) to Health Canada. The Evidence Package submission is the final step required in order to demonstrate and confirm to Health Canada that the Facility is fully built, operationally ready and in compliance with the Cannabis Act and Regulations, prior to being issued its Standard Cultivation License.
Grey Bruce’s initial phase of 15,000 sq. ft., is estimated to produce 1.64 million grams annually. With the completion of Grey Bruce, the Company’s current annual estimated output is approximately 4 million grams.
In addition to the existing Standard Cultivation license at Alberta Craft Cannabis in Edmonton, and the recently completed Tumbleweed Farms (currently awaiting its Standard Cultivation License) in Chase BC, Grey Bruce is the third facility that GTEC has completed in order to produce, market and distribute its premium indoor flower. The Company’s 2019 planned cultivation facilities are expected to span a total of 120,000 sq. ft., across three Provinces (BC, Alberta and Ontario), with the anticipation of reaching an estimated annual output of 14,000 kg of indoor flower in late 2019 (through the completion of GreenTec Bio-Pharmaceuticals and 3PL, both in BC).
With the recently announced changes to Health Canada’s licensing system, we remain confident that Grey Bruce will be issued its Standard Cultivation license in a timely manner,
said Norton Singhavon, Founder, Chairman and CEO of GTEC.
We would like to thank our stakeholders for your continued support as we work diligently to increase our overall production and sales over the course of 2019
