Health Canada Increases Mettrum's Licensed Production Capacity

Agripharm's licensed production capacity increases from 12 to 45 rooms

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - July 20, 2015) - Mettrum Health Corp. ("Mettrum" or the "Company") TSX VENTURE:MT)(TSX VENTURE:MT.WT), a vertically integrated agri-pharmaceutical company focused on research, development, production and distribution of medical cannabis products, is pleased to announce that Health Canada has approved the amendment to increase production capacity from 12 to 45 rooms at its Agripharm ("Mettrum Creemore") facility, representing an increase in production capacity of nearly 300%, effective immediately.

The Mettrum Creemore production facility resides on 80 acres of land which will provide for the Company's future expansion requirements. The current 45 licensed rooms are housed on approximately one acre of land, allowing the Company to significantly further expand its operations as customer acquisition continues to ramp up.

"We are very pleased with our success in increasing the production capacity at Mettrum Creemore. Our client acquisition strategy is on track and requires us to have more product available for sale and in inventory to ensure we maintain adequate supplies of all of the products in the Mettrum Spectrum," said Michael Haines, President and CEO of Mettrum Health Corp. "Our licensed production capacity and customer acquisition strategy go hand in hand. We are pleased at the pace we have been able to manage this balance as we continue to grow steadily and provide a superior overall customer experience."
