EDMONTON – In a press release, Aurora Cannabis Inc. announced the successful delivery of the first ever batch of privately exported medical cannabis from Canada to the Italian government through its wholly-owned German subsidiary Pedanios.

Following the delivery, the products have now been distributed to Italian Pharmacies.

In January, Aurora and Pedanios had won an Europe-wide public tender to supply 100kg of medical cannabis to the Italian government through the Italian Ministry of Defense, who oversee medical cannabis production and distribution in Italy.

Aurora's Chief Global Business Development Officer, Neil Belot, added, "We are extremely proud to become the first non-government supplier to the Italian market. This historic first shipment of premium quality, EU GMP-certified medical cannabis provides Aurora with a first and highly visible foothold in a market with over 60 million people. With nation-wide coverage in place for the cost of cannabis, we anticipate rapid growth, and look forward to establishing the Aurora Standard as the benchmark in this exciting market."
