The receipt of the Licence is the final requirement for Materia Malta to begin commercial production and export of medical cannabis. Materia Malta's facility, which is already EU GMP certified, has an annual throughput capacity of 6,000kg, representing a potential sale value of ?36MM based on a blended average sales price across several key European markets.

Deepak Anand, CEO of Materia, said, "We are delighted to be fully licensed and to begin generating revenues from our Malta facility. I'd like to congratulate our entire team for helping realize our vision of a state-of-the-art processing facility, especially in working through the circumstances presented by the pandemic over the last 18 months."

Malta Enterprise, the government's economic development agency, also applauded the work of Materia. Malta Enterprise's CEO Kurt Farruga said, "We are delighted to see Materia achieve this milestone. We have been working closely with Materia since the beginning and the calibre of the team exemplifies the type of company we are proud to support here in Malta. We fully expect Materia to be one of the industry's long-term leaders."

Materia Malta has already begun the process of importing its first batch of raw material for commercial production and will begin fulfillment of its supply commitments imminently, starting with the initial target markets of Germany, Malta and the UK. The first product has already been successfully registered on the narcotics licence of Materia Deutschland GmbH ahead of its import into and across Germany.

"As happy as we are to secure our licence, we immediately begin execution on the next phase of our plan," commented Nick Pateras, Managing Director, Europe, at Materia. "We now have a fully built and licensed pathway into the European market for cultivation partners all over the world. This encompasses our in-house processing expertise in Malta on top of our distribution capabilities into and across Germany, Europe's biggest market, through Materia Deutschland."
