The facility, located near Leipzig, will produce cannabis to be sold wholesale to pharmacies and the German government. Aurora has been exporting dried cannabis flower to Germany since 2017.

"We are very proud to have been selected as one of only three companies by the German government, which is a great achievement by our team," Chief Global Business Development Officer Neil Belot said. "Having the highest rated concept is a strong validation of the Aurora Standard cultivation philosophy, as well as of our track record in the delivery of safe and high-quality medical cannabis products to the German system.”

The deal will become official April 17 or later.
