“Signing the Purchase and Sale Agreements is an important milestone as we continue to expand into the US market,” HEXO CEO and co-founder Sebastien St-Louis stated. “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."
This facility would also enable Hexo to commence with manufacturing activities and to further broaden its joint-venture with Molson Coors Brewing Co TAP to craft Truss CBD-infused beverages, added St-Louis.
