Alberta’s capital region is set to be home to the largest cannabis gummy production facility in the country.
Dynaleo is set to open a 26,000-square-foot manufacturing plant near the Edmonton International Airport after it secured a processing facility permit from Health Canada. Executive chairman Michael Krestell said the next step now is to get a licence to sell so the company can move its edible products to be sold from the Alberta Gaming, Liquor and Cannabis (AGLC) online store and other businesses.
“We’ve been very active in the facility commissioning our equipment and so we are just in the final stages of training on that equipment. Then it’s all up and running,” said Krestell.
Speaking from Toronto, Krestell said cooperation from all levels of government, an established cannabis industry and skilled workforce were all factors in picking Edmonton as the facility’s home.
There are currently 30 people working in the facility as the company prepares the building and starts processing. Krestell said he expects a total of 75 jobs will be created during peak production.
