On the eve of legalized recreational marijuana and concerns about supply shortage, one of Canada’s largest producers believes automated machines will be the key to producing more cannabis.
Leamington-based Aphria currently has supply agreements with every province and Yukon, boasting about plans to produce roughly 20,000 kilograms of marijuana a month by spring.
As they expand their footprint to 3 million square feet, they’re constantly looking at automation to reduce costs and maintain quality, said co-founder John Cervini.
“It’s what’s made us the low-cost producer, helped us to maintain that low-cost producer status,” he said during a recent tour of the facility.
