TORONTO , Dec. 17, 2018 /CNW/ - Beleave Inc. (BE.CN) (BLEVF) ("Beleave" or the "Company") is pleased to provide an update and clarification on the Company's GMP certification process.

Beleave Inc. (CNW Group/Beleave Inc.)

As part of the process, Global Compliance Inc. has inspected and assessed the Company's processes for the production of medical and recreational cannabis and determined that the facility meets all requirements for certification. The finding was provided on the basis of CAC/RCP 1-1969 The Codex General Principles of Food Hygiene; The Seven HACCP Principles and the Food Safety Enhancement Program of the CFIA.

The Canadian GMP audit process is designed to help companies prepare products for export. Beleave is seeking GMP certification so the Company can export medical cannabis to its German partner, Canymed GmbH, and expects to be audited by the German GMP certification authority early next year.

Beleave looks forward to providing further updates on international expansion and details regarding licensing applications as they develop.
