True Leaf has announced the hiring of two people to head up its cannabis cultivation team.
Stephen Schroeder will come on as the chief cannabis industry advisor, and Christian Zofchak will hold the mantle of director of horticulture operations.
“True Leaf is assembling a world-class team of medical, genetics and cultivation experts,” says True Leaf CEO Darcy Bomford.
According to a True Leaf press release, Stephen Schroeder has overseen millions of square feet of cannabis cultivation worldwide.
While Christian Zofchak brings more than 20 years of experience, and is expected to provide environmental controls necessary to eliminate the need for pesticides and fungicides during the production of cannabis products.
True Leaf has received permission by Health Canada to build its True Leaf Campus cannabis cultivation facility and broke ground on March 2, 2018. The 25,000 square foot facility is expected to be completed in late summer 2018.
True Leaf is currently in the final stages of Health Canada’s Access to Cannabis for Medical Purposes Regulations (ACMPR) process.
The company broke ground on its cannabis facility in Lumby at the beginning of March.
The 25,000 square foot facility is expected to be completed and operational by fall 2018.
