LONDON, Ontario – Indiva Limited (the “Company” or “Indiva”) (TSXV: NDVA) (OTCQX: NDVAF), the leading Canadian producer of cannabis edibles, is pleased to announce that it has entered into a Licensing and Manufacturing Agreement with Oregon-based Grön to bring its innovative and fun edibles brand portfolio to Canada. Following on Indiva’s success producing and distributing the top selling chocolates and gummies in Canada, the launch of Grön products in Canada will expand Indiva’s edible portfolio to include products with thoughtful, unique minor cannabinoid ratio combinations and form factors. The initial term of the agreement is for five years, automatically renewing for three additional five-year terms.

Grön’s edibles portfolio includes candy-coated chocolate ‘Pips’, chocolate bars, gelatin gummy ‘Pearls’ and other novel edible products. Grön currently manufactures and distributes its products across four US states, where legally permissible to do so under applicable state laws, and distributes its CBD-infused products into international markets.
“We are delighted to partner with Grön to bring their innovative, original, high-quality edible products to the Canadian market,” said Niel Marotta, CEO of Indiva. “Indiva remains committed to growing its top-line and market share organically in Canada by bringing products to market that delight our customers, while expanding the selection of legal cannabis edibles in Canada. This agreement will allow Indiva to do just that, with new products which are unique to the Canadian market and complementary to our existing portfolio of cannabis edibles.”
“We are excited to partner with the Indiva team to bring what we believe are the best tasting edibles in the market today. Their commitment to product consistency and industry support gives us confidence that they will be exceptional stewards of the Grön brand. Grön’s cannabis-infused edibles are the perfect addition to the Canada adult-use cannabis market, bringing the ‘Edibles 2.0’ to the community through our innovative effect-driven cannabinoid ratios, deliciously refreshing gummy and chocolate flavors, all made with high quality ingredients,” said Christine Smith, Founder and CEO of Grön.
