MONCTON, NB, Feb. 19, 2019 /CNW/ - Organigram Holdings Inc. (TSX VENTURE: OGI) (OTCQX: OGRMF), the parent company of Organigram Inc. (the "Company" or "Organigram"), a leading licensed producer of cannabis, is pleased to announce the release of an immersive 360-degree virtual facility experience, highlighting innovative indoor production practices at its Moncton, New Brunswick campus.
"We are told time and time again by industry experts, analysts and investors who visit that our production facility is precedent-setting for indoor cannabis production," Organigram CEO Greg Engel said. "We're proud of the innovation and engineering that's gone into the design; our geographic location makes it challenging for many visitors to visit in person, so we're eager to offer them an inside look from wherever they may be in the world."
The tour, available as an immersive 360 experience for both Android and iOS-enabled devices, takes viewers through Organigram's entire production process, from propagation to packaging. Facility infrastructure including mechanical controlling, irrigation and the campus' 40-megawatt substation are also highlighted.
"We've learned a lot since beginning production back in 2014. We're proud to have established industry best practices and have modified our production to maximize both available space and efficiency. Our three-tiered growing model is one-of-a-kind in Canadian cannabis production, and users get to experience what it's like to be inside a flowering room surrounded by plants on all sides. Minus the aroma, it's very close to being there."
The Organigram virtual experience is the first of its kind among Canadian licensed producers to offer a behind-the-scenes look at production and infrastructure at a cutting-edge, industrial-scale indoor facility. Viewers are guided through the experience by a virtual guide, who delves into processes around the plant life cycle, extraction and more.
A video version of the virtual tour is available on the Organigram website, at:
