Dentons law firm representing Okanagan Cultivators begins the official licencing process for Okanagan Cultivators to receive from the government of Greece a cultivation license. Okanagan Cultivators has established relations in Greece with land, and partnerships that will allow Okanagan Cultivators to operate its cannabis cultivation facility. “This will be our largest independently owned and operated facility in Europe,” says Ken Fortier, Director of Operations for Okanagan. While Okanagan is in negotiations to acquire partnerships in other EU countries for cultivation the Greece facility is expected to be the largest production facility in Europe for Okanagan. “The products from the facility will stay in Europe and be delivered to our European clients,” said Miller CEO of Okanagan Cultivators. “We want to focus on and support the European cannabis market from the inside through European business in cultivation and distribution”.
Headquartered in Prague, CZ, Okanagan Cultivators does not have plans to relocate only to expand their operations to the countries in which they are doing business in. “Greece is an ideal place to set up cultivation, as we are also developing cannabis wellness for travelers looking to experience the Okanagan wellness concept”. Miller also stated that the production capabilities in Greece are massive and could easily be one of the largest cultivation facilities in Europe. “The European market should not have to rely on imports from outside Europe”, explained Miller, “There are more than enough opportunities to sustain domestic cultivation which is better for the European cannabis market”. Miller believes that the European cannabis market is well organized and managed by the government better than that of the USA and even Canada for regulation and support.
