VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Nov. 29, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Agra Ventures Ltd. (“AGRA” or the “Company”) (CSE: AGRA) (OTC: AGFAF), a growth-oriented and diversified company focused on the international cannabis industry, announces that the Propagation Services Canada Inc. joint venture of which it owns 70%, which is currently doing business as “Boundary Bay Cannabis” (“BBC” or the “Joint Venture”), has received approximately $910,000 worth of purchase orders for its cannabis since August 31, 2022. The purchase orders were received from multiple parties and represent a total of over 725,000 grams of processed product.
BBC’s strategy continues to be the growing and selling of bulk cannabis on a wholesale basis to other licensed producers across Canada. The greenhouse complex in Delta, BC, within which the Joint Venture operates, provides a strong opportunity for BBC to be as competitive as possible in the Canadian cannabis industry. However, declining market prices; rising labour and energy expenses; and the ongoing high cost of maintaining regulatory compliance are making it difficult for licensed producers like BBC to operate unless Health Canada’s review of the Cannabis Act yields some significant and imminent improvements.
“I’d like to thank the staff and BBC’s sales agent for doing their part to grow great cannabis and secure these purchase orders. Together, these orders represent a significant milestone for the Joint Venture in both their total cannabis volume and aggregate dollar amount,” said Nick Kuzyk, Interim CEO, AGRA Ventures Ltd. “As the Joint Venture’s sole director, I would also like to sincerely thank BBC’s clients for their business at this important time,” added Mr. Kuzyk.
