Canada: AgraFlora and Blox to form cannabis operations management company

AgraFlora Organics International, a growth oriented and diversified international cannabis company, and Blox Labs announced a letter of intent to negotiate in good faith a definitive agreement whereby AgraFlora and Blox intend to form a joint venture company to build a team of professionals from the cannabis, agriculture and pharmaceutical sectors to manage and operate state-of-the-art agricultural greenhouse facilities. Currently Blox has executed a letter of intent with Best Cannabis Products to enter into a definitive agreement to acquire a 180,000 sq. ft greenhouse facility on 50 acres of land in Leamington, Ontario.

"I am very pleased to announce the letter of intent with AgraFlora Organics to create a cannabis operations management company that would oversee future cannabis operations including our potential ownership in the Leamington, Ontario project," said Jeff Zanini, CEO and Director, Blox Labs. "Derek has built an impressive management and operations team for AgraFlora and its large-scale greenhouse complex in Delta, BC and we will work together to do the same for the Leamington cannabis greenhouse and other projects. AgraFlora brings years of large-scale greenhouse experience to Blox and the Leamington project and we will leverage this experience to introduce industry best practices to create the most efficient operation possible."

"I am very pleased to be joining Blox Labs to establish management and operational best practices for medical cannabis cultivations for projects like the operation at Leamington, Ontario," said Derek Ivany, President & CEO of AgraFlora Organics International Inc. "What impressed me the most with the Leamington project was the size of potential expansion of up to 1,000,000 sq. ft. of growing area. As our industry matures it will be those companies with large and efficient operations who succeed. Our management and operating team overseeing the retrofit of a former tomato greenhouse complex in Delta, BC, has many years' experience operating high tech greenhouses. The Delta Greenhouse Complex will be one of the most efficient greenhouses in the country with advanced technology operating HVAC, water and lighting, its own natural gas co-gen energy plant and prime location in Delta, BC. We will take a similar approach to the Leamington greenhouse and other potential projects. I look forward working with Jeff and his team as we finalize a definitive agreement and begin building the management team for the conversion at Leamington."
