Organigram Signs Strategic Supplier Agreement with Hiku Brands

Organigram Holdings Inc., the parent company of Organigram Inc., a licensed producer of medical marijuana, has entered into a letter of intent with Hiku Brands Company Ltd.

As an approved supplier to Manitoba Liquor & Lotteries, Organigram will supply Hiku with up to 1,000 kg of premium cannabis products per year for the term of the three-year agreement. Products include both dried cannabis and cannabis oils, which will be sold through designated Tokyo Smoke retail locations in Manitoba.

“Organigram and Hiku share a deep commitment to exceptional quality and innovative products,” said Greg Engel, CEO, Organigram. “As we move towards a legal, adult recreational use cannabis market, we are proud to be affiliated with companies and brands with a clear and demonstrated focus on their customers and a first-class customer experience.”

The relationship is based on several discussions between the groups on product portfolio, strategic direction, quality and branding. A selection of brands, featuring Organigram’s 2017 Canadian Cannabis Award-winning sativa Wabanaki, will be chosen to play a role in Tokyo Smoke’s retail plans within the Manitoba market.

“Hiku is excited to have the opportunity to carry Organigram’s products in Tokyo Smoke stores,” said Alan Gertner, CEO of Hiku Brands. “This agreement will help ensure additional quality indoor-grown cannabis is available to the adult-use consumer in the province of Manitoba, where Tokyo Smoke was awarded one of only four conditional master licenses for recreational store fronts allowing us to open multiple store fronts across the province”
