ANTIGONISH, Nova Scotia, Jan. 10, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Biome Grow Inc. (“Biome” or the “Company”) (CSE:BIO) (6OTA.F) (BIOIF) is pleased to announce its Nova Scotia-based subsidiary, Highland Grow Inc. (“Highland Grow”), has secured its first purchase order with the Nova Scotia Liquor Corporation (“NSLC”). The first shipment of finished product grown and packaged specifically for consumers in Nova Scotia is expected to be received by the NSLC later today.
This is the first shipment of what the Company expects to be regular deliveries to the NSLC. The first shipment consists of three genetic varieties well suited to the tastes of the local market. Highland Grow anticipates expanding its genetic and product offerings with subsequent shipments starting later this month. Through this first allotment of products, the Company will be looking to validate its localized approach to its domestic market, which in this case will also be supported by special positioning of its products in NSLC retail locations.
Today’s announcement is the culmination of our professional expertise and experience in the cannabis market and the Company’s localized approach to building provincial brands which serve the unique requirements of its local cannabis consumers.
“As a team of proud Nova Scotians, we are excited to see the first shipment being delivered from our locally established facility to the Nova Scotia consumer,” said Frank MacMaster, President of Highland Grow. “Biome and Highland Grow are preparing to meet the unprecedented increase in demand and do our part to eliminate the current supply shortage in our home Province, and throughout Canada’s legalized cannabis market.”
