A CANADIAN company is seeking to tap into the Jamaican market for the supply of dried marijuana to the medicinal marijuana industry in Canada.
Marketing director of FLOR, Raymond Grant, (the local agent for the company), told The Gleaner that 80 per cent of the shares of the company are owned by Jamaicans living in Canada who are ready to invest in Jamaica.
Grant has been meeting with local farmers and laying the groundwork for the development of a supply industry in Jamaica.
“I believe this is the first Canadian company formed to export cannabis from Jamaica to Canada. There are about 15 licensed dealers (in Canada), so we would be the wholesalers. We would supply the dealers in Canada. That is how we see our role,” he said.
