Eve & Co Completes Major Greenhouse Expansion

Female focused cannabis producer Eve & Co has completed a 780,000 sq. ft. greenhouse expansion that should bring its annual capacity to 50,000 kg.

The firm currently operates a 220,000 sq. ft. hybrid greenhouse in southwest Ontario and the expansion will take it past the 1 million sq. ft. mark. It still needs to achieve a Health Canada license for the new site, but it is confident in gaining approval after following the strict requirements on every design.

“At just over a total of 1 million square feet, our facility is now one of the largest cannabis growing facilities in the world and will enable us to be a significant supplier to the Canadian and world cannabis market,” said Melinda Rombouts, president and chief executive at Eve.

She believes the greenhouse is a “first of its kind” in Canada due to fully integrated micro pore netting and fully continuous roof vents. The team at Eve hired Dutch firm BOM Group to manufacture the greenhouse systems and Canadian company Universal Fabrication to construct it.

Rombouts is one of the first female leaders in the Canadian cannabis industry and her senior team features several women. The firm believes it has a level of foresight into what women want that its male-dominated rivals cannot hope to match, arguing that this leaves it well-positioned to enjoy strong sales growth in the years ahead.

Expanding the facility in Ontario is a significant milestone in its business plan and it will invite local politicians to a ribbon-cutting ceremony in the near future. It then plans to ramp up production of various lines for women in Canada, while pursuing international wholesale opportunities.

Part of the facility will be EU GMP certified so it can target the German market, and its wholly-owned subsidiary, Natural MedCo, has signed a pre-sales agreement with a German distributor. It aims to use that as a springboard for targeting other European markets too.
