Cannabis Grower Launches in Montreal

Company to build state of the art vertical aeroponic facility

MONTREAL – October 16, 2018 /Canna Newswire/ – Great White North Growers Inc. (GWNG) a new producer of premium medical and recreational cannabis, has announced plans to build a 142,000 square foot growing facility in east end Montreal.

The founders and management team of this privately held company include Quebec business veterans Peter Schissler and George Goulakos, along with George Desypris, Ph.D. With over 25 years of experience, Legacy Grower Kris Love will lead the cultivation team.

Construction is underway on the company’s cultivation facility in Ville d’ Anjou, a borough of Montreal, Quebec and will commence operations in November 2018. Phase One will include a 54,000 square foot facility with a capacity of over 17,000 kilograms per year. President Peter Schissler expects to create over 150 full-time positions.
