VANCOUVER, British Columbia, April 24, 2020 /CNW/ -- CanaFarma Hemp Products Corp. (CSE: CNFA) (the "Corporation" or "CanaFarma") is pleased to announce that it has signed a Letter of Intent ("LOI") with a privately held company to acquire a manufacturing facility for its hemp oil-based consumer products operations.
The potential acquisition would include a 25,000 square foot facility in New Jersey, of which the private company currently uses a small part of the facility to manufacture certain pharmaceutical and nutraceutical products under "current Good Manufacturing Practices" (cGMP). It is the Corporation's intention to acquire and continue to produce these products under the cGMP designation, as well as to expand the use of the facility to manufacture Canafarma's YOOFORIC brand hemp oil-based consumer products.
The LOI is non-binding and a due diligence period is currently underway which, if successful, will be followed by the negotiation of a definitive agreement for the acquisition of all of the assets of the private company.
David Lonsdale, CEO of CanaFarma said, "This has the potential to be another substantial step forward for CanaFarma, as we continue to execute on our overall strategic plan to build a completely vertically-integrated hemp-based company. Having our own manufacturing facility would not only allow us to scale production in support of our growing sales and product line expansion, but also to bring new innovative products to market much faster under a more efficient and controllable cost structure."
