In fact, Terrace Global Inc. (TSXV – TRCE) has already secured production assets in low cost jurisdictions and maintains a proprietary deal pipeline to acquire additional production capacity.
Here is a quick look at some of the assets the company has already secured:
* Uruguay — Terrace’s ownership of Oransur, S.A. gives the company access to an operation of 150 acres located in Florida, Uruguay with the ability to expand production area to 1,250 acres. And Terrace’s investment in Faises gives the company one of only two licenses in Uruguay to produce and distribute recreational cannabis. Current production at Faises is 2 tons per year with the opportunity to increase to 4 tons per year.
* Spain – Terrace owns 100% of Pharmabinoide S.L., a licensed producer of hemp in Spain with approximately 100 acres of hemp operations located in Jaen. Pharmabinoide is in the process of being accredited by the Spanish Medicines and Health Products Agency (AEMPS) to allow its products to be certified for medical and research purposes.
* Portugal – Terrace owns 100% of Terra Nova, a Portuguese company positioned to be a leading European producer of medical cannabis and industrial hemp.
