WINNIPEG — DELTA 9 CANNABIS INC., has completed the installation and implementation of its fully-automated pre-roll manufacturing equipment at the company’s Winnipeg, Manitoba facilities, increasing the company’s capacity to manufacture pre-rolled cannabis products.

The pre-roll automation project has been funded in partnership with the Canadian Agricultural Partnership AG Action Manitoba program, through a Contribution Agreement for $175,000, or 25 per cent of the overall project cost.

“The expansion in pre-roll manufacturing capacity marks a significant milestone for Delta 9. In 2022 we produced and sold over 1 million cannabis pre-rolls, generating over $2.3 million in revenue,” said John Arbuthnot, CEO of Delta 9. “We anticipate that the new automated pre-roll equipment will allow Delta 9 to produce up to four million pre-rolls per year with significantly lower manufacturing costs and improved contribution margins from the sale of pre-roll products. We want to thank the Government of Manitoba for their partnership in this investment through the AG Action Manitoba program.”

The company plans to add multiple strain specific and cannabis pre-roll products to its portfolio in 2023 and views the pre-roll segment as a key growth driver for the Company’s wholesale cannabis business.

The Canadian Agricultural Partnership is a bilateral agreement between the Government of Canada and the Government of Manitoba which oversees the AG Action Manitoba program.
