LAS VEGAS, NV, Jan. 16, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via NEWMEDIAWIRE -- One World Pharma, Inc. (OWPC), “OWP,” a fully licensed pure-play cannabis and hemp ingredient producer in Colombia, has been honored by the Assembly of the Department of Cauca, Colombia for its efforts to invest in, develop and empower the local population in the region. The award is the highest distinction granted by the Assembly, and was approved unanimously by the governing body.
One World Pharma’s mission is to create a leading international cannabis and hemp ingredient company which leverages the extremely beneficial natural conditions in equatorial Colombia with the best interests of the indigenous people in mind. To that end, OWP has put the people of the once troubled State of Cauca first; hiring, training, and partnering hand-in-hand with them in a shared goal to capitalize on the unique Colombian cannabis and hemp opportunity.
The company has already hired a large number of indigenous people and created new opportunities for them to partner in profitable outcomes. In addition, One World Pharma has overseen the construction of new roads, running water and other essential amenities.
“We are proud to walk-the-walk and not just talk-the-talk,” stated Brian Moore, President, One World Pharma. “Our company was and is intent on a business model that lifts others up, changes their lives for the better, and harnesses that goodwill as the driving force to become a real agent of change in Colombia and the international cannabis and hemp marketplace. This award, given by those who know us best, is a testament to our commitment and to the life-changing impact of our devoted team.”
“This is more than just an honor from our friends and partners for a new Colombia,” stated Moore. “It is an affirmation of our pledge to work in partnership with the people who need it most, and to collaborate in this emerging part of Colombia to benefit their people.”
“As we draw ever closer to our first harvests and revenue generating activities, it is heartening to have our core humanitarian mission acknowledged,” added Moore. “The people of Cauca are now closer to living the lives every human deserves.”
