The Victoria, Australia government has awarded a $1.97 million grant to medical cannabis company Cann Group to assist with electricity upgrades at a cultivation and production facility in Mildura. The project was eligible for the Regional Jobs Fund grant as the facility has the potential to create 150 local jobs.
Cann Group CEO Peter Crock said the support of the Victorian Government is critical in developing the state’s leadership position in the emerging Australian medicinal cannabis industry. He said the company chose Mildura “due to the region’s agricultural and horticulture heritage and because of the local climate, specifically, the days of sunshine and high light intensity which are conducive to cultivating cannabis crops.”
