AgraFlora Organics International Inc. (OTCMKTS:AGFAF) has submitted an official response to the first Request for More Information from Health Canada about a Standard Processing Licensing application. The application is for the company’s 51,000 sq. ft. fully automated manufacturing facility for edibles in Winnipeg, Manitoba.
AgraFlora a step away from a manufacturing license for edibles facility
The response for the RMI is a big step in the process of receiving Standard Processing Licenses for the edibles manufacturing facility. In late May, the company submitted the site evidence package to the regulator for a manufacturing license. On August 27, 2020, AgraFlora launched R&D trials through its Health Canada R&D license for dialing in formulations for marijuana activated gelatine and pectin gummies, sugar-free variants, and hard candy. The company is currently in discussions with various companies in Canada regarding the formulation and product development as an R & D service. The company is optimistic the R&D services deals will be vital in the long-term production pathway.
James Fletcher, the Operational Manager and Co-founder of EIC, stated that receiving a manufacturing license for the edibles manufacturing facility is a huge milestone for AgraFlora. He added that the company has finalized the RMI request submission, which puts the company a step closer to receiving a Manufacturing License for the edibles facility to commence commercial operations. Fletcher said that the R&D trials have helped the company with strong results for recipes with favorable texture, flavor, and manufacturing efficiencies.
