TORONTO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Heritage Cannabis Holdings Corp. (CSE: CANN) (OTCQX: HERTF) (“Heritage” or the “Company”), today announced that it has entered into an arrangement (the “Arrangement”) with CannaBR Exports Corp (“CannaBR”), a Brazilian focused pharmaceutical CBD product importation and distribution company, for the distribution and sale of bulk CBD products to the Brazilian cannabis market.
Heritage, in conjunction with CannaBR, has focused on filing and achieving approvals from the Brazil Health Authority (ANVISA) to distribute and sell bulk CBD products in Brazil and is currently in advanced stages of product stability testing to meet ANVISA’s requirements. Further, through the Arrangement, Heritage has established contracts with minimum order quantities agreed to by both parties to deliver CBD products in bulk to CannaBR’s large distribution network in Brazil with the option to establish long-term distribution contracts.
CannaBR already holds an import license, and Heritage is currently awaiting final confirmation from Health Canada to receive its export approval for the first test run to satisfy the ANVISA requirements. Upon satisfying product stability testing requirements under ANVISA, in addition to the minimum order contracts currently in place with CannaBR, the Company will commence final negotiations to secure a long-term sales agreement for a 5 year term with a 5 year extension.
“As we continue to develop several international opportunities, the agreement with CannaBR is a pinnacle relationship for Heritage as it extends our international strategy beyond the United States and provides access to the growing Brazilian cannabis market which some project to grow to as much as USD $12 billion by 2028,” stated, Clint Sharples, CEO of Heritage. “Our joint efforts with CannaBR bring together Heritage’s expertise as a licensed producer and CannaBR’s international relationships to provide premium CBD products to the Brazilian market.”
