The committee unanimously approved Beleave's request to rezone their facility in Hamilton, Ontario and will reconvene later this month, through a city council meeting the week of May 20, 2019, to finalize the approval for expansion.
Beleave's Hamilton facility continues to provide high-efficiency extraction, R&D, product development and cultivation of cannabis and cannabis derived products throughout this approval process. The facility's significant expansion, if approved City Council, will provide the ability to expand its current production capacity.
The Hamilton facility houses growing space for Beleave's line of cannabis products, and continues to be its main hub for extraction, packaging, and distribution. The proposed expansion will allow the Company to greatly increase the efficiency and productivity of its growing and distribution strategy.
