“The first quarter of 2019 is just the start of what we expect to be a year of tremendous growth,” said Greg Engel, the Company’s Chief Executive Officer. “We’ve always believed the Moncton Campus would be a competitive advantage for us being able to produce high-quality indoor-grown product at low cash cost of cultivation. Our first quarter results confirmed that as we reported an adjusted gross margin of 71%.”

According to company materials, “From the day we started back in 2013, it’s been about making lives better – for our clients, our people, and our community. We’re based in Moncton, New Brunswick, the heart of the Maritimes, but at OrganiGram Holdings we’re committed to improving the quality of life for Canadians across the country. For us, this means working with health-care providers and industry organizations, supporting research and education, and providing a safe, effective product. To be effective in that last goal, we made a decision to produce organic cannabis. Growing certified organic medical cannabis isn’t easy, in fact, most licensed producers won’t take this on. It means more care, more testing, more rules… but in the end, it means a product that we feel delivers on our goals in the best way. And improving the quality of life for Canadians is not just about getting safe, quality product to them effectively. It’s about creating jobs, being good neighbors and contributing to our community.”
