“I entered 2020 looking for strong assets in the cannabis industry where I felt that our team could contribute to building strong and sustainable businesses, with a focus on engaging with key consumer segments to drive profitability and return on investment for shareholders,” said John Fowler, Principal of Blaise Ventures. “I spent the latter part of 2019 meeting with a wide range of cannabis companies throughout Canada, and was particularly impressed by AgraFlora’s market opportunity, which is further amplified by its key assets. Properly aligned, the Company’s assets are well positioned in 2020 to transform from development projects into customer-focused businesses that fill unmet Canadian consumer demand in true commercial cannabis edible production, high potency low cost cannabis flower, and craft cannabis. In addition, I saw an important International segment in the Farmako subsidiary which presents a great opportunity to organically scale one of Germany’s leading medical cannabis distributors into a leading distributor of medical cannabis for all of Europe.”
