Aurora Cannabis to expand production, hold back some supply for edibles launch
Business
Aurora Cannabis Inc. is building up inventory to prepare for legalization of edibles and vaping products next fall, but insists that won t interrupt its sales growth and march to profitability.

The Edmonton-based company says it will grow its production to 25,000 kilograms in the current quarter ended June 30, but an unspecified portion will be held out of the market.

Supply shortages and the slow opening of retail cannabis stores in some parts of Canada have plagued the industry since initial legalization last October.

Ottawa has indicated edibles containing cannabis and cannabis concentrates would become legal for consumers in October, but the exact timing of product approvals and sales is still unknown.

Chief corporate officer Cam Battley says Aurora is concentrating on developing an initial supply of vape pens, edibles and concentrates to launch when the market opens.

Aurora nearly doubled production to 15,590 kilograms in its most recent quarter as its Aurora Sky facility in Edmonton and Bradford facility in Ontario ramped up to take company-wide capacity to 150,000 kilograms per year.
