VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - April 28, 2014) - Supreme Pharmaceuticals Inc. (the "Company") (CSE:SL)(OTCBB:SPRWF) is pleased to report that the South Okanagan producing facility, which will from hereon in be referred to as "Facility 1", has now formally submitted an MMPR application to Department of Health Canada. As part of the months of preparations prior to the submission, Facility 1 engaged the services of specialist legal council, security, and consulting firms to ensure all areas of the Health Canada application criteria were met as fully as possible.
The current production facility has been constructed to full commercial standards and was designed to meet all relevant local and provincial government requirements. Supreme is confident that the existing facility will need only minor upgrades to meet the update requirements of the new MMPR license category, assuming it is successful in its application.
Facility 1 engaged a consulting firm that is experienced in MMPR applications and has had prior success. The consultants have provided valuable input into many aspects of the application requirements based on their prior experience with Health Canada officials and the MMPR application process. Facility 1 is also receiving additional expert consulting advice on the important matters of internal and external security.
The Company is aware that the licensing process involves a rigorous review of the applicant by multiple authorities and can take several months with no guarantee of success. However, Facility 1's management team is confident that their prior experience and expertise in the industry and the high commercial standard of the facility will meet Health Canada's requirements for a full commercial MMPR license.
The Company is currently reviewing other medical marijuana operations in Western Canada for possible investment opportunities.
