Aurora Receives GMP Certification For Ontario Facility

Aurora Cannabis announced today it received European Union Good Manufacturing Practice certification for its facility in Bradford, Ontario.

Aurora Cannabis Inc. (NYSE:ACB), the Canadian company defining the future of cannabis worldwide, announced today its Aurora River production facility, located in Bradford, Ontario, has received European Union Good Manufacturing Practice ("EU GMP") certification. EU GMP certification is granted to companies whose production facilities demonstrate a high degree of quality and consistency in their manufacturing procedures and is a requirement for the export of medical cannabis products into most European markets.

In addition, Aurora is pleased to announce it has received all necessary approvals from local regulators in Germany for sales of its medical cannabis products, following a temporary sales suspension on certain products in December 2019. Aurora will fulfill existing sales orders from inventory currently held in Germany, ensuring local patients will have immediate access to medicine from their preferred pharmacy.

Aurora is leading the development of medical markets across Europe and around the world.

Terry Booth, CEO of Aurora

Booth went on to say that "The EU GMP certification of our River facility further validates our strategy focused on purpose-built facilities, designed and constructed exclusively for the production of high-quality, pharmaceutical grade cannabis. I congratulate our team on successfully working with regulators and licensing bodies to ensure Aurora's facilities and products are in accordance with local and international standards that will allow for greater access to the highest quality medical cannabis products to patients who need them."

Designed for large scale, high quality production, Aurora River has a cultivation capacity of 28,000 kg per year across its 17 fully-planted, independently climate-controlled grow rooms. The EU GMP certification of Aurora River enables the Company to allocate both a greater quantity of dried and extracted product to international markets as well as introduce new products grown and produced in the facility. To date, Aurora has received EU GMP certification for 3 of its 10 Canadian production facilities. Aurora River joins Aurora Mountain, located in Mountain View County, Alberta with a production capacity of 4,800 kg a year, and Aurora Ridge located in Markham, Ontario with a production capacity of 7,000 kg a year, in achieving this important certification.

This could be one of the best investing opportunities of 2020

Legislative changes are blowing through the US, and with it, an ever-increasing number of states legalising cannabis for recreational use.

With the success seen in Illinois, which legalised for adult-use on January 1 and saw products moving off the shelf at an unprecedented rate, this company is primed to take advantage of the booming US recreational market.

They have secured partnerships with the biggest cannabis companies in the US, and their portfolio is second to none.

And with the sector-wide pullback of 2019, this company is now at a bargain-basement price.
