B.C.-based cannabis producer targeting entry into high margin, high barrier cannabis beverage segment in 2019, pending new regulations
VANCOUVER, May 29, 2019 /CNW/ - B.C.-based Sungrown cannabis producer Tantalus Labs, announced today that it has entered into a letter of intent (LOI) with the founders of leading British Columbian beverage makers Postmark Brewing and Craft Collective Beerworks. Through the LOI, the companies intend to design, develop, and implement a production line of cannabis infused beverages (when legally permitted) targeting a 2019 product launch.
Postmark Brewing co-founder and brand visionary Steve Thorp, and Andrew Harris, co-founder of Craft Collective Beerworks, have notable experience in production line design, beverage formulations, and marketing in a regulated environment. As proven operators, their expertise will compliment Tantalus Labs' knowledge of quality cannabis production.
"Cannabis users in Canada and beyond are expected to one day access products in age controlled environments like restaurants and bars. When regulations allow, we will be there," says Dan Sutton, CEO, Tantalus Labs.
"We wanted to partner with a team who puts product quality at the forefront of their brand. Tantalus Labs is a global leader in these core competencies, and together we will deliver products that will shift the paradigm of cannabis consumption," says Steve Thorp, Co-Founder of Postmark Brewing.
The group is targeting execution of a definitive agreement in the coming months.
