NEW YORK, Feb. 28, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via NetworkWire - NetworkNewsAudio (NNA), a NetworkNewsWire (NNW) Solution that delivers clients unparalleled visibility, recognition and brand awareness in the investment community, today announces the online availability of its interview with The Green Organic Dutchman Holdings Ltd. (TGOD.TO) (TGODF) (TGOD Profile), a client of NNW and a premium global organic cannabis company with operations focused on medical cannabis markets in Canada, Europe, the Caribbean and Latin America, as well as the Canadian adult-use market.
The interview can be heard at http://nnw.fm/r6ABR.
NNW’s Stuart Smith opens the interview with an introduction to TGOD CEO Brian Athaide, who recaps several recent milestones and how they feed into the Company’s broader goals.
“We’ve come a long way if you look at progress on our two facilities in Canada ... We’ve been doing a lot of work in getting those facilities further along and actually have done a lot of redesign work based on learnings in the industry … where people are facing bottlenecks and operational issues,” Athaide says, noting that these efforts successfully increased TGOD’s Canadian production capacity to more than 200,000 kilos.
In October 2018, TGOD acquired HemPoland, a leading European manufacturer and marketer of premium organic CBD oils, providing the Company a strategic pathway into the European market.
“We’re really establishing our business there by expanding the brand Cannabigold that we acquired from HemPoland and creating the sales and distribution infrastructure that we can then launch our TGOD THC brand on top of that, as more and more countries become legal from a medical cannabis side,” says Athaide.
In Denmark, TGOD’s joint-venture production partner, Knud Jepsen, was granted an initial cannabis business authorization. This license was a green light for Knud Jepsen to immediately begin importation of starting materials and to begin research and development related to the creation of elite cannabis genetics.
“We are partnering with ... Knud Jepsen, and they’ve been in the agricultural business growing flowers for about 80 years in greenhouses and have a lot of great capabilities … that we believe will be transferable to cannabis,” Athaide explains. “We’re looking forward to partnering with them in cultivating in Denmark for the Danish market, and then we’re also looking at other places where we can cultivate at much lower cost in Europe … so we’re progressing well with our European strategy.”
TGOD also has interests in Mexico, where the Company has reached a joint-venture agreement with one of the country’s largest pharmaceutical distributors. The joint venture is expected to provide TGOD more than 7,000 points of distribution in the country and create an “early mover advantage” should the new government legalize recreational cannabis.
On par with its operational advances, TGOD kicked-off 2019 with several internal achievements.
“We’ve reached the point where we’re close to launching our brand … we’re now ready to go to the next stage,” says Athaide, who then discusses additions to the Company’s leadership to execute the next phase of development.
As host Smith notes, listeners can learn more about Athaide and the rest of the Company’s management team in an earlier NNW audio interview at http://nnw.fm/I4q8y.
“You need to give it a good listen, because this is a great management team pushing forward a very ambitious company,” says Smith.
Wrapping up the interview, Smith asks Athaide to discuss the state of the cannabis industry. Athaide forecasts that the crowded cannabis industry will shrink in size, with only the fittest companies prevailing.
TGOD’s proven leadership, scalability and focus on premium organic crop, he says, will differentiate the Company from others.
“There’s a lot of news in this industry … a lot of money being raised and deployed, but it’s really going to come down to execution in terms of who will be able to actually succeed and last in this market,” he says. “That’s what we’re focused on, is really being able to execute with excellence … We’re focused on really dominating that organic segment within the market.”
