It’s been a busy week for the OCS.
On Friday the Ontario Cannabis Store announced that they had entered into supply agreements with two additional Health Canada-licensed producers – 48 North and We Grow BC.
“These additional supply agreements exemplify our commitment to securing sufficient supply for Canada’s most populated province in light of the national supply shortage” said Patrick Ford, president and CEO.
In total, there are now agreements with 39 cannabis producers and 21 accessory suppliers, OCS said.
Yesterday the OCS also issued a call for new cannabis product categories including edibles, beverages, topicals, and extracts.
LP’s have been invited to identify their ability to supply beverages, edibles, and topicals as well as additional dried cannabis flower, pre-rolls, capsules, oils, seeds, and accessories.
“This product call marks an important milestone in securing a broad variety of cannabis products that meet the preferences of Ontario consumers,” said Patrick Ford. “We are committed to working towards eliminating the illegal market by diversifying our legal and tested product selection and offering customers the products they are excited about.”
Suppliers who wish to be considered may answer the product call by June 28 via submission at DoingBusinesswithOCS.ca.
