Fire & Flower Announces Cannabis Distribution Agreement with Manitoba Liquor & Lotteries

Fire & Flower Holdings Corp., a leading cannabis consumer technology and retail platform, today announced that its wholly-owned subsidiary, Open Fields Distribution has entered into a one-year cannabis distribution agreement with Manitoba Liquor & Lotteries (MBLL). Under the Agreement, Open Fields will offer distribution of recreational cannabis products from licensed producers to retailers in the province of Manitoba at the direction of the MBLL.

Strategic Benefits of the Agreement

  • Extends the existing Open Fields business, which offers wholesale and distribution services in Saskatchewan, into a second province.
  • Leverages significant experience of the Company’s recently acquired logistics and delivery subsidiary, Pineapple Express Delivery.
  • Enables retailers across Manitoba to receive product more efficiently and benefit from the established high level of service offered by Open Fields.
  • Further enhances strategic relationships with key licensed producers across all segments of the Fire & Flower business.

“Open Fields was selected as part of a competitive RFP process to provide cross docking services in the province of Manitoba and we are delighted that MBLL has trusted our business to provide these services. Open Fields and Pineapple Express Delivery have significant experience in servicing retail customers in the provinces of Saskatchewan and Ontario and extending these services into an additional province creates scale and efficiency for the wholesale business segment,” shared Trevor Fencott, Chief Executive Officer of Fire & Flower. “We will look to continue to pursue business opportunities and acquisitions that drive additional revenue by adding value to existing business segments.”
