FinCanna Reports Strong Customer Demand for Portfolio Company QVI Inc., a Multi Brand Cannabis Manufacturer in Sonoma County, California
QVI’s Facility is Designed for Annual Operating Capacity of ~US$45 Million
Vancouver, British Columbia, February 10, 2021- FinCanna Capital Corp. (“FinCanna”) (CSE: CALI), (OTCQB: FNNZF), a royalty company for the U.S. licensed cannabis industry is pleased to announce growing demand for manufacturing services for its investee company QVI, Inc. doing business as “The Galley”, a cannabis infused product manufacturer located in Sonoma County, California.
QVI’s 8,300 sq. ft. state of the art co-manufacturing facility located in Santa Rosa, CA, is built to FDA and CDPH standards and has been fully operational since July 2020. The company is experiencing accelerating demand for its services from a growing roster of over 30 in-state and out-of-state highly regarded consumer brands. QVI is also experiencing a steady increase in re-orders from existing clients that is establishing an increasing base of recurring monthly revenues.
QVI management attributes the acceleration of customer demand to its automated manufacturing expertise, superior production quality and its “one stop shop” capability to produce virtually all high-value cannabis products, including Edibles, Topicals, Tinctures, Chocolate, Hard Candies, Gummies and Beverages under one roof. Additionally, its outstanding R&D team has the ability to assist brands in launching not only new individual products but whole new product lines. The Galley’s operational design also positions the business to rapidly scale production as demand escalates towards its annual operating capacity of approximately US$45 million.

We are anticipating a breakthrough year for QVI and look forward to sharing in their success with an increasing monthly royalty income stream for our shareholders.“
QVI’s immediate goal is to become the premier contract cannabis manufacturer in California, the largest single market in North America and, upon success, to license products nationally and globally.
The legal U.S. cannabis market is expected to reach more than US$41 billion in annual sales by 2025 with California, the single largest market in North America, representing an estimated 20% market share or US$8.2 billion. (New Frontier Data)
