PUF Ventures Inc. (“PUF” or the “Company”) (CSE: PUF) (Frankfurt: PU3) (OTCPK: PUFXF), an advanced Access to Cannabis for Medical Purposes Regulations (“ACMPR”) license applicant, is pleased to provide an update on the progress made at its majority owned AAA Heidelberg growing facility in London, Ontario. Since June 27, 2017, when the Company announced a facility update, the management team has been working with David Hyde and other consultants to complete the buildout of the facility in preparation for notice to Health Canada. While the bulk of the items have been finished, there was a need to update the overall security plan.
“I have been working with the AAA Heidelberg team throughout the ACMPR process to ensure that the facility is meeting or exceeding all facility requirements including security,” said David Hyde owner and principal consultant at David Hyde and Associates. “Our most recent audit of the London, Ontario facility shows the team is committed to the process and are closing in on their proof of readiness submission to Health Canada.  I look forward to continuing to work with both AAA Heidelberg and the parent company PUF Ventures as they look to expand their cannabis business beyond the borders of Canada.”
Since late June, the Company has completed the following items and facility upgrades:
Installation of an air purification unit
Renovation of office space and employee break areas
Sanitization and purification of the facility
Installation of perimeter security fencing
The final step is the security system installation.
The PUF management team is committed to installing the most up-to-date growing and security technologies in its Canadian and international facilities. To meet this objective, the team recently traveled to Smith Falls, Ontario to visit Canopy Growth’s Tweed operation which is housed in the famous former Hershey Chocolate factory at 1 Hershey Drive. The overall operation comprises 40 acres of land with over 500,000 sq. ft. of available space. Tweed occupies 168,000 sq. ft. of licensed production space, plus office space where Canopy’s head office is located. As the leader in cannabis production, Tweed’s operation is lean, automated and data-driven, with an R&D facility, oil extraction infrastructure, and in-house lab. Precise climate controlled rooms for each stage of cannabis production, from clone to cured bud, allows for the highest quality and widest variety of product in the sector.
“We are working closely with David Hyde and heeding his advice to ensure that our facility is ready for Health Canada,” said Mr. Derek Ivany, President and CEO of PUF. “By installing a state-of-the-art security system as recommended by Mr. Hyde, we will be able to submit our proof of readiness. Our recent meeting and tour of the Canopy Growth grow facility in Smith Falls, confirms we are on target with operating platform of the London, Ontario facility. We are now focused on building a global brand with expansion into the European and Australian markets, and as the Canadian government moves closer to legalizing recreational use of cannabis, we will continue to move forward creating shareholder value by also expanding the number of market verticals the Company is involved in.”
