In response to Canada’s recent legalization of cannabis, Dandurand set up Velvet Management to focus on the sales and marketing of cannabis brands. The Green Organic Dutchman is Velvet’s first cannabis partner and it will focus exclusively on the certified organic segment of the market and hold onto responsibility for brand marketing.

"Velvet will be a powerful partner with their knowledge of the industry, extensive contacts, and second to none distribution capabilities,” said Mike Gibbons, vice-president of sales, in a statement. “We look forward to seeing the tremendous success achieved by Dandurand in the wine and alcohol industry translate to the cannabis sector."

Vianney Aubrecht, president of Velvet, was also bullish on the new partnership.

“At Velvet, we are committed to selling only the highest-quality cannabis,” Aubrecht said in a statement. “TGOD does things the right way, from organic certification to packaging and branding. It’s a model we are used to in the wine business and we have very high expectations for the TGOD brand.”
