Health Canada approves licence for 350,000-sq.-ft. facility in Niagara region

According to Foodincanada.com, Health Canada has approved the licensing of a 350,000-sq.-ft. greenhouse facility in Niagara-on-the-Lake operated by Tweed Marijuana Inc. (Tweed Farms) to produce medical marijuana.

The facility will be built with sustainability in mind, incorporating practices such as the harvesting of rainwater from the roof surface of the greenhouse, the recirculation and re-use of water, and CO2 capture strategies. It will have the potential to produce up to 4.5 million grams of marijuana per year, based on expanding its licensing to the full square footage. The first harvest is expected in the fourth quarter of 2014.

Tweed currently has a 150,000-sq.-ft operation in Smiths Falls, Ont., at the site of the former Hershey processing facility.
