Flowr deepens its roots, doubling capacity

Cannabis grower The Flowr Corporation is doubling its production capacity, adding 10 more grow rooms to its Kelowna facility.

Flowr CEO Vinay Tolia calls the full licensing of its Kelowna 1 facility “a major milestone” for the company.

“For the first time since we broke ground on the facility we won’t be operating out of a construction site,” he says.

“We continue to see growing demand for our premium cannabis products led by our flagship strain, Pink Kush. Furthermore, we expect to see an improvement in operating efficiency as we reach scale coupled with the commissioning of our automated packaging line.”

The company’s Kelowna operation now has an estimated potential annual capacity of 10,000 kilograms.

The newly licensed area includes automated packaging equipment anticipated to reduce costs.

This is the final approval required for full operation of the facility, says Flowr. It now plans to begin “phasing in the propagation of these additional grow rooms” and it expects the 85,000-square-foot facility to produce up to 10,000 kilograms of premium bud every year.
