Hugo Alves, President of Cannabis Wheaton stated, “I have personally known the Dixie team for many years and have the utmost confidence in their people and the high-quality products that they produce. Over the past five years I have watched Dixie amass an impressive intellectual property library and we believe that their proprietary formulations and products continue to separate them from their competitors. We are eager to learn from one of the best producers of cannabis-derived products in the world and this long-term partnership cements a long-standing relationship and evidences our commitment to ensuring product diversity within our platform and mitigating margin compression through the acquisition and development of value-add IP.”
Chuck Smith, CEO of Dixie, stated, “This is an exciting time for Dixie. For nearly a decade, our team has worked passionately to develop safe, consistent, and innovative products under a brand that consumers have come to know and trust. We have worked hard with our partners to build that brand responsibly in Colorado, California, Nevada, and Maryland. Now, our partnership with Cannabis Wheaton will greatly broaden the reach of Dixie’s product portfolio as they begin distribution throughout Canada and Mexico. We look forward to continuing Dixie’s standard of excellence in our expansion efforts throughout North America.”
