Choklat’s License and New Product Line
On January 13, Namaste Technologies (TSXV:N) (OTCQB:NXTTF) announced that Choklat was granted a processing license from Health Canada.

When they are ready to hit the market, these new product formats will be added to Namaste’s e-commerce website CannMart.com, and offered through provincial cannabis stores in authorized markets.
Meni Morim, the CEO of Namaste Technologies, said of the new product line:
“We believe there is pent up demand for cannabis-infused edible products on a national scale. Choklat is one of the first food processors in Canada to receive its processing license from Health Canada and we expect their products to be on shelves in March, allowing for the Health Canada notice period.”
Morim also discussed Namaste’s equity position in Choklat and its partnership with that company’s CEO, Brad Churchill.
“We invested in Choklat not only to maximize the significant market opportunity for cannabis-infused edibles but also because we see Brad as a true craftsman in his trade and the quality of his products speak for themselves.”
