"It's exciting to reach new milestones as we begin commercial production,” said Brian Athaide, CEO of TGOD. “Growing certified organic cannabis at scale is a highly complex process which has taken time, great care and extensive research to refine.”
Each of TGOD’s facilities goes through a robust certification process, according to Athaide.
"The proprietary methods our team has developed leverage the benefits of growing in living soil and guarantees the organic integrity of the products throughout the entire production chain,” he said in a statement.
The Pro-Cert recognition is one of many for the Toronto-based licensed producer. It comes in addition to previously certified growing facilities in Canada and Europe.
Pro-Cert's certification programs are ISO 17065 compliant and accredited. The certification process includes validation of inputs, production methods and preparation procedures according to Canadian organic product regulation.
TGOD recently launched its Global Strategic Hemp Division to exploit the booming global CBD market, leveraging the company’s expertise in the European hemp CBD market to fuel growth and accelerate the development and commercialization of new products across its network of international partners.
