June 6, 2014, Vancouver, BC – Supreme Pharmaceuticals Inc. (“Supreme” or the “Company”) (SPRWD – OTC) (“SL” – CSE)is pleased to report that the Company has commenced the construction of the required security upgrades on its recently acquired greenhouse. The Company is working with mechanical engineers, security consultants, architects, fire and rescue consultants, electricians, quality assurance specialists, and medical marijuana production specialists to ensure the facility meets or exceeds all requirements. Construction has commenced on the core production and processing rooms and the high security areas of the facility, including a custom-designed vault, which will be approximately 1200 square feet in area with insulated walls and locked steel security doors. The vault will be designed and installed to meet Health Canada’s requirements to store dried marijuana.
Under the terms of the MMPR licence, the Company, through its subsidiary (“Subco”) can build out and operate the 342,000 square foot facility capable of producing up to 24,000,000 grams (24,000 kilograms) of medicinal marijuana per year.
To complete the licensing requirement and move from pre-build status to post-licence production, the Company must complete the installation of the required security measures. Once Health Canada completes its final inspection of the facility, Subco will be granted an MMPR production licence. It is anticipated that initial production could commence by the fourth quarter of 2014. The Company anticipates it will take 90 days to construct and implement the required security measures.
Peter Herburger, President and CEO of Subco stated “We are very excited to commence the construction of the security measures, including the security vault. We are making the necessary investments to ensure our operation meets all federal, provincial and municipal requirements and exceeds all fire and safety regulations.”
