Chuck Rifici, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Cannabis Wheaton commented, “As a cornerstone asset in the Cannabis Wheaton portfolio, we are excited to start this journey with the FV Pharma team to build-out a truly world-class facility. As I previously mentioned, this project is special to us as it will not only create additional and much-needed supply for the medical and recreational Canadian cannabis markets but also has the potential to create hundreds of jobs for the City of Cobourg.”

The technical pattern here still looks promising, but we want to see more progress in terms of working out the top-line growth issues. The company is operating in a growth sweetspot and should be able to start putting up numbers rather than just buzz and hype. Its most recent deal will hopefully help to push this story toward more tangible financial success.
According to the release, the FV Pharma facility was formerly a food manufacturing center for Kraft Foods and features as much as 620,000 square feet of building space. Company management also notes that the location is a positive in this case given that it just about an hour from Toronto with multiple easy points of access to Ottawa and Montreal.
Thomas Fairfull, President and CEO of FV Pharma said, “We couldn’t have asked for a better joint venture partner for the development of our world-class facility and the execution of our business plan that we expect will create hundreds of quality skilled jobs for the City of Cobourg. We are excited at the opportunity to build and operate something special with Cannabis Wheaton and to set the gold standard for cannabis cultivation and for cannabis-derived consumer products.”
