This week the first plants arrived at the brand new HEXO greenhouse! With the new greenhouse facility of 1,000,000 sq. ft. HEXO now has a total production capacity of 1.3 million sq. ft. of advanced cultivation an manufacturing labs, with more room to expand. The expansion has extended the capacity to 108,000 kilograms of dried cananbis per year.
Today, the construction works have finally begun for our new office. The factory next door has been used to full satisfaction for two years now. Afther months of designing and drawing the moment was finally here. The first pile was driven into the ground uder the watchful eyes of the employees and there was a toast to the start of the construction.
"The French market is a very good market to cultivate for. There is a demand for a clean, sustainably cultivated quality product: the tomatoes must be red and of good taste." This is what Jean Marc Paimblanc from the French tomato nursery Le Maraîchers du Mont Saint-Michel is saying. Recently, Havecon completed the company's 17 hectare greenhouse.
From 14th to 16th November 2018 the yearly MJBizCon exhibition took place in Las Vegas. This is the largest exhibition in the world aimed at the cannabis industry. This booming market attracts a lot of attention from people all over the world. This year, there were over 25,000 visitors and over 1000 exhibitors, including Havecon. This year's MJBizCon featured 150-plus speakers and more than 65 sessions. The exhibitors are spread out over nearly 175,000 square feet of floor space, up 137% from last year.
Exhibitors at the MJBizCon are active throughout the cannabis chain. Greenhouse builders, LED lighting, Growing systems, Growers, Packaging, Processing etc. With legislation going on, everyone wanted to be present this year to make sure they don't miss out. The result: a long line for the registration and crowded walkways with visistors looking for information.
