Eve & Co Incorporated announced that its wholly-owned subsidiary, Natural MedCo Ltd. (“Natural MedCo”), has received its European Union ‘Certificate of GMP Compliance of a Manufacturer’ from the Government of Upper Bavaria (Regierung von Oberbayern), Germany.
EU GMP certification is one of the key and final regulatory steps for Natural MedCo to start fulfilling its previously announced supply agreements. The granting of this certificate recognizes the robust efforts the Company has undertaken to ensure its manufacturing standards, production practices and products are of a consistent high quality and that its employees have the experience to satisfy the EU GMP requirements. To the knowledge of the Company, Natural MedCo is one of only a handful of Canadian companies that has received EU GMP certification for cannabis.
Melinda Rombouts, President and CEO commented: “I am very pleased that Natural MedCo has been able to achieve EU-GMP certification, and I attribute this accomplishment to the hard work of our team and their dedication to ensuring our facility complies with the most stringent standards. This certification enables us to continue in our global growth strategy and fulfill contracts in the EU market. With our 1 million square foot licensed greenhouse, we hope to set ourselves apart as not only one of the largest cannabis facilities in the world, but also by having the ability to distribute our products in a much larger global marketplace.”
Eve & Co, through its wholly-owned subsidiary Natural MedCo Ltd., holds cultivation and processing licences under the Cannabis Act (Canada) for the production and sale of various cannabis products, including dried cannabis, cannabis plants and extraction of cannabis oil and has received EU GMP certification.
