VANCOUVER — Vancouver-based manufacturer of cannabis-infused beverages BevCanna Enterprises Inc. announced Feb. 18 it is significantly expanding its manufacturing premises, in anticipation of the firm receiving its standard processing license and initiating full-scale commercialization this year.

BevCanna’s current 5,235 square foot of dedicated cannabis production premises has doubled to 10,378 square feet.

“This expansion is an exciting step for BevCanna,” said John Campbell, chief strategy officer at BevCanna, in a prepared statement. “We expect to receive our standard processing license imminently, and we’re preparing to initiate full-scale production in the coming months. We’ve seen a fantastic consumer and industry response to the upcoming Canadian beverage market, and this development ensures that we have capacity and full product offerings to fulfil the anticipated demand.”

Campbell continued, “The high regulatory barrier to entry for cannabis infused beverages is proving difficult to surmount for many licensed producers that wish to expand their brands into this emerging category. Beverages are BevCanna’s core expertise. BevCanna’s world class bottling facility has been designed with maximum flexibility to cover a wide array of bottle sizes and form factors to allow the Company to fully serve its white label client needs.”
