Aphria announced yesterday, in a news release, that the company has entered into an agreement with Shoppers Drug Mart to become its medical marijuana supplier.
Owned by the food distribution giant Loblaw, Shoppers Drug Mart, the largest pharmacy chain in Canada, is making its move to enter the marijuana distribution supply chain in Canada.
Aphria said in its company release, “Subject to Health Canada’s approval of Shoppers Drug Mart’s application to be a licensed producer, under the terms of the agreement the Company will supply Shoppers Drug Mart with Aphria-branded medical cannabis products. It is expected the products will be sold online, as Canadian regulations currently restrict the sale of medical cannabis in retail pharmacies.”
“We have an impeccable record cultivating and producing high-quality, medical-grade cannabis,” said Vic Neufeld, CEO of Aphria. “These traits make us a strong partner for an organization looking to serve and support Canadian patients.”
Aphria, which is based in Leamington, Ontario, boasts that it is one of the lowest cost phrama-grade marijuana producers in Canada.
