The goal of Adastra Labs is to be a leading standard cannabis processor
Processing plant from Adastra Labs
Adastra Labs Holdings Ltd. owns an approximately 4,000 square meter former food packaging facility in Langley, British Columbia.
The building is less than an hour’s drive from Vancouver Airport or downtown Vancouver.
The facility is one of the first buildings in the region to be zoned specifically for cannabis processing and testing.
Adastra Labs Holdings Ltd. is currently upgrading the building, which was designed to be GMP compliant.
Upon completion, the plant is expected to process more than 400,000 kilograms of dried cannabis per year and more than 30,000 liters of highly refined cannabis oil distillate.
The plant is also expected to house a secure storage facility of approximately 4,500 square meters, which can hold more than 7,500 kilograms of dried cannabis while providing space for finished products.
The Adastra Labs processing facility houses an in-process test laboratory, which is operated by the subsidiary Chemia Analytics. As the facility is being retrofitted, Chemia intends to continue with ISO 17025 certification to complement the processing facility’s compliance with GMP standards. Chemia recently received its analytical testing license from Health Canada.
