STELLARTON — Cannabis production in Stellarton has officially begun.
Zenabis Global Inc. CEO Andrew Grieve announced the facility’s official opening on Monday after receiving its Health Canada approval to cultivate and grow cannabis at the former electronics plant on Acadia Avenue.
The 255,000 square-foot facility is the third for Zenabis and adds a design capacity of 18,500 kilograms of dried cannabis a year. The company also produces cannabis in Atholville, N.B. and B.C.
“This is an important milestone for our company,” Grieve said. “Together with our progress in securing supply agreements with governments and private vendors, this milestone further positions Zenabis to be a significant provider of cannabis to Canadian consumers. We are very excited to increase our growing capacity in Eastern Canada. We are also incredibly grateful to the community for their support, and we look forward to significantly increasing local employment.”
