ROSE LifeScience Announces Expanded Distribution Partnership with Tilray Canada
HUNTINGDON, QC, Sept. 20, 2021 — ROSE LifeScience Inc. (“ROSE”), a local Quebec cannabis player, announced a partnership with Tilray Canada Ltd., a Canadian subsidiary of Tilray Inc. (TSX: TLRY), a leading global cannabis-lifestyle and consumer packaged goods company (collectively referred to as “Tilray”).
The news follows the recent industry-impacting business combination between Tilray (an existing ROSE partner) and Aphria Inc.— creating the world’s leading cannabis company. As a result, Huntingdon, Québec’s ROSE is now an official partner to the new entity, representing an array of recreational cannabis brands in Québec.
“Expanding new business in Québec is always exciting,” said ROSE LifeScience President and CEO Davide Zaffino, of the partnership which includes sale, supply, distribution, and marketing. “Québec is the third largest cannabis market in the country. Partnerships like this show us why.”
The partnership between ROSE and Tilray first launched in December of 2018 with ROSE representing five of Tilray’s adult-use recreational cannabis brands. The newly expanded partnership with ROSE will now represent the full Tilray portfolio inclusive of Grail, Marley Natural, Dubon, La Batch, Broken Coast, Riff, Solei, Good Supply, B!NGO and P’tite Pof. This means that ROSE will now be representing the entire Tilray Portfolio — spanning from ultra-premium options to accessible value brands from across Canada.
Davide Zaffino, ROSE LifeScience President and CEO stated, “Tilray believes in us and investing in the Québec market, so expanding our relationship through this new partnership not only shows we are on the right track together but is a testament to their vision. To have Tilray’s full confidence means a lot to everyone at ROSE. We believe it’s another opportunity for communities, businesses and consumers in Québec to rally around the cannabis industry responsibly and continue to help it advance in the right way.”
