#Cannabisstocks: Organigram (TSX VNTURE: OGI) (OTCQX: OGRMF) Finalizes Certification Process with Ecocert Canada

MONCTON - October 10, 2018 (Investorideas.com Newswire) Organigram Holdings Inc. (TSX VNTURE: OGI) (OTCQX: OGRMF), the parent company of Organigram Inc. (the "Company" or "Organigram"), a leading licensed producer of medical marijuana, is proud to announce its medicinal cannabis plants and growing process has been certified organic with Ecocert Canada.
The process of re-certification coincided with Organigram's significant expansion of its facility to meet the growing and anticipated demand for both mineral and organic production.
As part of the process, Organigram submitted a comprehensive action plan to Ecocert Canada, part of the Ecocert group, one of the largest organic certification organizations in the world, outlining the company's robust segregation design to manage and execute the complexities of producing and processing both streams of product within the same facility.
"When we considered the need to expand and meet the needs of our existing and future customer base, it was apparent that we needed to take our time and create an environment of excellence related specifically to the production of organic cannabis for medicinal use," says Greg Engel, CEO Organigram. "We have built a robust and diligent organic strategy into our plans to help ensure we can confidently deliver medicinal products that meet the exacting standards of our clients."
As a licensed producer of legal medicinal cannabis, Organigram is one of the most experienced organic producers in the industry and has developed a strong understanding of the organic cannabis client through the Canadian medicinal cannabis program, the ACMPR.
"We know that there is a committed and loyal segment of the cannabis population that is looking for exceptional organic products for medicinal use," explains Ray Gracewood, Chief Commercial Officer, Organigram. "With that in mind, we have applied the best of what we know about organic cultivation to what we also know about product development and strain selection and are proud to offer clients a high-quality medicinal organic option."
