Vancouver, BC, July 22nd, 2020 - TransCanna Holdings Inc. (CSE: TCAN: XETR: TH8) ("TransCanna" or the "Company") TransCanna announces that Lyfted Farms Inc. (a wholly-owned subsidiary) will build a processing division inside its Daly Street Building that was not originally planned in phase one in order to meet the increased demand for this service and ultimately increase profits margins.
Once operational, the division will oversee the trimming, drying, curing, grading and packaging of cannabis, and support TransCanna's strategy of vertical integration of the California cannabis market through distribution centers serving Northern California from the Daly Street building, and Southern California from the Company's recently announced Lemoore facility.
"Once we received our final State License for the Daly Building, our already existing demand increased significantly. To meet this demand and seize the opportunity we saw to really drive our bottom line margin through processing, we sped up the timeline to add processing at this level," said Bob Blink, TransCanna CEO. "We have the team and the space to execute this. Being agile enough to adapt to a changing market and identify opportunities for growth within it speaks to our collective mindset. When we run the numbers, we can see upon execution this service adding an additional 10% to our forecasted revenue targets." adds Blink.
"This will facilitate the larger strategy of the Daly facility becoming a central distribution point for Lyfted Branded products and a wholesale processing center," said Alan Applonie, company General Manager. "Converging marketing and buying interests into a single Northern California location gives state-wide buyers a broader range of products to purchase," he adds.
The Processor License is an additional license type not included in the original statute specifically added for processors. As this is a new business segment whilst being built out, the Company has submitted an application for a Processor License and anticipates approximately a 90-day timeline to receive it.
The Daly building's phase one deployment plan will also accommodate perpetual storage of at least 20,000 lbs. of cannabis flower in a climate-controlled atmosphere that will serve business-to-business cannabis market demand throughout California.
