The Green Organic Dutchman Holdings Ltd. announced that its flagship Valleyfield, QC facility has received its organic certification from Pro-Cert, an internationally recognized leader in organic certification.

Once completed, TGOD’s Valleyfield facility is going to be the world’s largest organic cannabis facility at over 1.3 million square feet. This Pro-Cert recognition adds another certification to the Company’s portfolio, in addition to TGOD’s already certified organic growing facilities in Canada and Europe, and shows TGOD’s commitment to cement its position as the leading organic cannabis brand globally.

“It’s exciting to reach new milestones as we begin commercial production. Growing certified organic cannabis at scale is a highly complex process which has taken time, great care and extensive research to refine,” commented Brian Athaide, CEO of TGOD. “Each of our facilities goes through a robust certification process, in line with the high standards we have set, ensuring operational excellence at all stages. The proprietary methods our team has developed leverage the benefits of growing in living soil and guarantees the organic integrity of the products throughout the entire production chain.”

Pro-Cert’s certification programs are ISO 17065 compliant and accredited, providing global recognition and international access to the products and brands they certify. The certification process includes validation of inputs, production methods and preparation procedures according to Canadian organic product regulation.
