With increased production, the company eventually plans to ship product to Europe
An expansion of Figr’s production facility on P.E.I. is almost complete, officials say. The Island cannabis company has added 210,000 square feet to its Charlottetown plant.
Edwin Jewell, the company’s president and CEO, said about 46,000 square feet of the added space will be dedicated to processing and 164,000 square feet will be dedicated to growing.
The indoor growing facility was built specifically for cannabis and includes computerized monitoring systems and climate control.
The company has invested heavily in the Charlottetown plant with the aim of ramping up production, Jewell said.
“Our processing building has been built to European GMP standards, which will allow us to ship product to Europe when the opportunity arises,” he said.
“That’s a huge deal and we’re very excited.”
