MMPR

Alliance holds a 50% interest in BC Maramed Production Ltd. (“BCMM”), which owns a leasehold interest and equipment for an 11,000 square foot production facility in Kelowna, British Columbia.  BCMM has submitted an application to become a Licensed Producer of medical marijuana under Health Canada’s MMPR program. Upon receipt by BCMM of an approved MMPR Production License from Health Canada, a further 12.5% interest in BCMM will be transferred to Alliance Growers.

Alliance Growers is being led through the MMPR license process by Rupert Shore with assistance from members of the Advisory board.   In addition to his duties as Director and Corporate Secretary for Alliance Growers, Rupert Shore, a practicing lawyer, is a member in good standing with the Law Society of British Columbia. He has been practicing law for 26 years and has been a sole practitioner focused on commercial litigation for the past 12 years.

Distribution Networks

The Company continues to look for attractive acquisition opportunities and commercial relationships. Charles Rendina, Regulatory and Financial Advisor to Alliance Growers, along with other members of the team, will be identifying and managing the opportunities for the US distribution network. Prior to joining Alliance, Mr. Rendina began researching the Washington state cannabis market from licensing and retail outlets to identification of the demand and trends of products being sold in Washington State. Mr. Redina is an International Business Lawyer, licensed to practice law in Washington and British Columbia, with over 26 years of experience advising business clients in both the USA and Canada on various cross border transactional matters. Mr. Rendina has provided advice and services negotiating mergers and acquisitions, negotiating and documenting significant loan transactions, intellectual property license agreements, private placements and other financings.

In addition to identifying acquisition opportunities in Washington State, Colorado and Oregon, Alliance is actively pursuing the purchase of dispensaries in Vancouver for distribution of medical Cannabis products.  Alliance has all the expertise it requires in its management and advisory members to be successful in this area.

Consumer Products

The Company is constantly seeking new accretive acquisition opportunities as well as commercial relationships for its Consumer Products division.  Alliance is currently in discussions with entities that will source, develop, distribute and sell cannabis related paraphernalia and edibles through retail establishments located in the emerging permitted US and Canadian markets. All members of the advisory board and management bring their respective consumer product resources to Alliance.  In addition to product acquisition, licensing and distribution, Alliance will be developing its own proprietary products under the guidance of Mr. Sina Pirooz, a Director and a compounding pharmacist.  Mr. Pirooz is a registered and practicing pharmacist and a professional member of the College of Pharmacists of British Columbia with over ten years of pharmaceuticals and pharmacy management experience. Mr. Shore will also be assisting with monitoring the current and proposed rules and regulations with regard to sales of medical cannabis and recreational cannabis products in both Canada and the US.

Research and Development

Under the guidance of one of Alliance Growers’ Directors, Sina Pirooz, the Company will be heavily engaged in research and development including certain product development involving his expertise in compounding pharmaceuticals. Mr. Pirooz, will also be a valuable asset for the Retail and Consumer Product divisions of the Company. As President of SP RX Services, an established pharmacy consulting company, Mr. Pirooz provides consulting, pharmacist and pharmacy management services to many of Canada’s largest and established drug store chains, pharmacy chains and independent pharmacies and drug stores, including Shoppers Drug Mart, Rexall Drugs, Pharmasave and Guardian Pharmacies.
