Medicine Hat Mayor Ted Clugston used his annual State of the City address to make a new, major announcement.

Clugston told the crowd about Folium Biosciences locating to the city, marking the first expansion into Canada by the company.

CEO Kash Shan says it was easy Medicine Hat as the place to produce things like hemp oil.

Shan says, “Our experience here has been phenomenal.  From RJ’s initial meeting with Invest Medicine Hat, to city officials like Ted Sandra and Lisa.  They’ve all gone out of their way to figure out how to create a pathway for us to come here.  So, it’s been a great experience.”

Shan says the facility will be located in the Box Springs Business Park and they plan to be running in the first part of 2020.
