Cronos Group Signs Multiyear Supply Agreement With MediPharm Labs

MediPharm Labs Corp. (TSXV: LABS)(OTC: MEDIF) has agreed to a multi-year supply deal with Cronos Group Inc. (NASDAQ: CRON).

Per the deal, MediPharm will supply Cronos Group's wholly-owned subsidiary, Peace Naturals Project Inc., with roughly $30 million in cannabis concentrate over 18 months. These figures could jump to $60 million over 24 months, subject to certain renewal and purchase options.
