Rubicon Expands Reach in Western Canada
VANCOUVER, British Columbia, June 15, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -PRESS RELEASE- Rubicon Organics Inc., a Canadian cannabis cultivator, announced June 15 that it has signed supply agreements with both Alberta Gaming, Liquor & Cannabis (AGLC) and the British Columbia Liquor Distribution Branch (BCLDB) for the sale and distribution of Simply Bare Organic cannabis to provincial and private cannabis retailers. Rubicon, by way of its distribution arrangement with Agro-Greens Natural Products Ltd., now sells its products in five Canadian provinces.
“Building a direct supply relationship with the BCLDB is critical to success in our home province of British Columbia and will allow Rubicon Organics to more quickly fulfill and deliver orders,” stated Jesse McConnell, CEO. “I am thrilled that Simply Bare Organic cannabis will be available for the first time in Alberta given the size and dynamic nature of the cannabis retail landscape that AGLC has built.”
Initial purchase orders and shipments directly from Rubicon’s Delta, BC facility are expected in the next week. Prior to the initiation of the BCLDB supply agreement, the company’s Simply Bare Organic cannabis was initially introduced in British Columbia by Agro-Greens.
AGLC is responsible for regulating private retail cannabis, the distribution of cannabis and operation of Alberta’s only legal online cannabis store, AlbertaCannabis.org, while the BCLDB is the sole wholesale distributor and public retailer of non-medical cannabis in British Columbia.
