KELOWNA — The Valens Company Inc. has completed the first shipments from Pommies months after the cannabis manufacturer secured a micro-processing license from Health Canada for production at its 30,000 square foot GTA facility.

Valens Co. says that the first shipment was sent to Ontario at the end of January, and they expect to fulfill purchase orders from British Columbia, Alberta, Manitoba and Yukon in the next few days.

“The GTA Facility is highly automated and built to fulfill today’s growing volumes while significantly bolstering our strategic potential by providing us with the operational footprint and expertise to make Valens the go-to name in cannabis-infused beverages in Canada,” said Tyler Robson, Chief Executive Officer and Chairman of The Valens Company in a statement.

“We are expanding our branded beverage offering with the introduction of new exciting formats and flavours which will be coming to market over the next few quarters as well as expanding relationships with new and existing B2B partnerships to further fill capacity.”

Valens Co. says products made in their GTA facility will be powered by SōRSE™ emulsion technology to create products that are free of cannabis taste and aroma and have predictable onset and offset timing.

Among its newest cannabis infused beverages, Valens Co. has introduced 355ml bottles of THC Raspberry Lemonade, THC Peach Lemonade and THC Lime Seltzer, each of which contain 10mg of cannabis.
