BevCanna Signs Letter of Intent for 130 Acre Outdoor Cannabis Cultivation

VANCOUVER, British Columbia–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Emerging leader in infused cannabis beverages, BevCanna Enterprises Inc. (CSE:BEV) (“BevCanna” or the “Company”), announced today that they have inked a letter of intent with Clearwater CannGrow to grow certified organic sun-grown cannabis on an aggregate 130 acre plot of land on BevCanna’s property near Osoyoos, B.C. Pursuant to the letter of intent, the parties have agreed to use best efforts to enter into a definitive agreement in respect of the proposed business relationship within 14 days.

“We’ve been seeking the right partner to oversee the cannabis cultivation operations on our site”

The joint venture combines BevCanna’s extensive beverage marketing and branding expertise and prime Okanagan outdoor cultivation site, with Clearwater Canngrow’s renowned skill in cannabis cultivation operations. Led by seasoned agricultural consultant Joey Bedard-Brunet, Clearwater CannGrow will plan, supervise, and operate the cultivation operation using Good Agricultural Practices.

“We’ve been seeking the right partner to oversee the cannabis cultivation operations on our site,” said John Campbell, Chief Strategic Officer at BevCanna. “Joey is the perfect candidate – he has the experience with MMAR start-up cannabis and hemp operations that we’ve been looking for, and expertise across agricultural industries. We’re excited to get the operation underway.”

Mr. Bedard-Brunet is a farm start-up expert; as co-owner of a large-scale hemp farm, a cricket farm, an organic ground crop vegetable farm, an outdoor cannabis farm, and other agricultural businesses. Leveraging his degrees in both horticulture and farming, Mr. Bedard-Brunet has also built one of the world’s largest hop farms and designed and executed one of the largest organic industrial hemp farms in western Canada

BevCanna expects to produce over 100,000kg of biomass through the venture and the finished extract is expected to yield over 10,000kg of pure cannabinoids. This positions BevCanna to become a global leader in the production of high-quality, next-generation products, in the lead-up to Canada’s legalization of next-generation products later this year.

Future phases of the joint venture will explore the potential of further expanding the outdoor cannabis production beyond the current 130-acre site, through the option of another site nearby in Bridesville, BC, and through the future lease of land from indigenous groups in prime growing areas in the Interior of B.C. The execution of all phases will allow BevCanna to develop into the largest outdoor cannabis cultivator in B.C.

Structure of the venture:

A new division of BevCanna (tentatively to be named BevCanna Cultivation) will be formed and Clearwater CannGrow will be engaged by BevCanna for a three-year term as a contract grower for the new division. Headed by Founder and CEO Joey Bedard-Brunet, Clearwater Canngrow will oversee and manage all the day to day operations, with Mr. Bedard-Brunet as the initial manager and head grower/cultivator on the license. BevCanna plans to have the outdoor cultivation license application submitted by end of November 2019 and to plant the first crop by spring 2020, with an anticipated Fall 2020 harvest.
