OTTAWA, May 14, 2021 — HEXO Corp (“HEXO” or the “Company”) (TSX: HEXO; NYSE: HEXO) today announced Purchase and Sale Agreements in relation to its first US production facility, through a wholly owned US subsidiary. The ~50,000 sq. ft. facility, located in Northern Colorado, will provide US CPGs and consumers access to the Powered by HEXO® technology.
“Signing the Purchase and Sale Agreements is an important milestone as we continue to expand into the US market. The Colorado facility will be instrumental to successfully executing on our US strategy, which includes the supply of high quality Powered by HEXO ® technology to our current and potential multinational CPG partnerships in the United States,” said HEXO CEO and co-founder Sebastien St-Louis. “The facility will provide HEXO with the necessary infrastructure to begin production and enable the Company to continue expanding our joint-venture with Molson Coors to create Truss CBD-infused beverages, while also creating the necessary capacity to support future, non-beverage CPG partnerships.”
The Colorado production facility, HEXO’s first in the US, is zoned for production of a full range of cannabinoids and offers multiple operational capabilities. The site will support Powered by HEXO initiatives across the country, in compliance with all applicable laws and regulations.
Powered by HEXO® is the trusted solution for leading CPG companies to safely enter the cannabinoid market, combining HEXO’s expertise in cannabis with CPG partners’ expertise in their industries to co-develop best-in-class cannabinoid-infused products.
