Delta 9 Cannabis (DN) has installed new automated pre-roll manufacturing equipment at its Winnipeg facility.
The installation significantly increases the company’s capacity to manufacture pre-rolled cannabis products.
The pre-roll automation project has been funded in partnership with the Canadian Agricultural Partnership AG Action Manitoba program through a Contribution Agreement for $175,000, or 25 per cent of the overall project cost.
“The expansion in pre-roll manufacturing capacity marks a significant milestone for Delta 9. In 2022 we produced and sold over 1 million cannabis pre-rolls, generating over $2.3 million in revenue,” said John Arbuthnot, CEO of Delta 9.
“We anticipate that the new automated pre-roll equipment will allow Delta 9 to produce up to four million pre-rolls per year with significantly lower manufacturing costs and improved contribution margins from the sale of pre-roll products. We want to thank the Government of Manitoba for their partnership in this investment through the AG Action Manitoba program.”
The company plans to add multiple strain-specific and innovative cannabis pre-roll products to its portfolio in 2023 and views the pre-roll segment as a key growth driver for the Company’s wholesale cannabis business.
The Canadian Agricultural Partnership is a bilateral agreement between the Government of Canada and the Government of Manitoba, which oversees the AG Action Manitoba program. The program funds investments in the Manitoba agriculture sector with a directive to enhance the diversification, competitiveness, and sustainability of the agriculture, agri-food, and agri-product sector by accelerating the pace of innovation in the Province of Manitoba.
