Aphria’s expanding portfolio of adult-use cannabis brands available to Canadians on this historic day
LEAMINGTON, ON, Oct. 17, 2018 /CNW/ – Aphria Inc. (“Aphria” or the “Company“) (TSX: APH and US OTC: APHQF) today provided the following commentary on the first of day of adult-use cannabis legalization in Canada:
Vic Neufeld, CEO of Aphria, said “Today we celebrate the end of nearly a century of prohibition and the beginning of an exciting new chapter for the cannabis industry. The Cannabis Act, which comes into effect today, cements Canada’s global leadership in this rapidly expanding industry. This is an historic moment as we march into the future of cannabis.”
“This is also an exciting day for Aphria as we look back on our journey. From founding the company in Leamington, Ontario in 2013 and completing our first shipment of medical cannabis a year later, to developing a comprehensive suite of brands, building a roster of strategic partners and continuing a persistent focus on innovation, we have experienced tremendous growth that will help us continue to lead the evolution of the industry in the years to come. It is the commitment of our incredible team and partners that has gotten us to where we are today and built Aphria into a global cannabis success story.”
“With legalization in effect and supply agreements in every province and the Yukon, Canadians across the country will now be able to enjoy Aphria’s extensive range of high-quality cannabis products from our diversified portfolio of adult-use brands – Solei, RIFF, Good Supply, Goodfields and Broken Coast. We look forward to bringing consumer-focused brand and product innovations to Canada’s adult-use market as the industry evolves.”
“This historic milestone would not have been made possible without the hard work and dedication of all those involved in the cannabis industry. This includes the Canadian government and the public servants at all levels, who have spent the past years building the regulations and guidelines for a safe and responsible industry; industry members, who have collaborated to build a leading model in Canada and for the rest of the world; researchers who have worked tirelessly to advance the world’s knowledge of cannabis; and all of those who have trailblazed this path and advocated for change. From the Aphria family, thank you; we look forward to taking this next step together,” added Mr. Neufeld.
