Fire & Flower Holdings Corp. (TSX: FAF) (OTCQX: FFLWF)’s subsidiary has received permission from regulatory authorities to operate a cross-docking pot logistics and distribution facility in Manitoba.
On Thursday, the cannabis retailer said that its subsidiary Open Fields Distribution or 10926671 Canada Ltd. has received its licence from the Liquor, Gaming and Cannabis Authority of Manitoba.
With the licence in hand, the facility can now begin to offer distribution and logistics services to licensed producers in the province. The company says it has gathered logistics expertise after acquiring Pineapple Express Delivery in early 2022. Open Fields also has experience with distribution activities in Saskatchewan.
“Through Open Fields Distribution, we are extending cannabis distribution services into a second province in Canada, building on our success in Saskatchewan,” Fire & Flower CEO Stéphane Trudel said.
“Cross-docking distribution and logistics services in the province of Manitoba further enhances our strategic relationships with key licensed producer partners across all segments of our business and we look forward to adding efficiency and a high level of service to customers in Manitoba,” Trudel explained.
Decibel Cannabis Company (TSX-V: DB) CRO Adam Coates said that Open Fields Distribution has been an important strategic partner for Decibel in Saskatchewan.
“We look forward to continuing our relationship with Open Fields in the province of Saskatchewan and bringing products to our retail customers in a more efficient manner through the new cross-docking service offered in the province of Manitoba,” Coates added.
