Radient continues to execute on its restructuring plan, which is bringing in new partnerships and developing new business lines to position the Company as a meaningful player in the cannabis industry.
Radient recently completed the acquisition of TRX, which is the Company's most significant acquisition to date and is expected to enable significant revenue growth for the Company. Radient has worked together with the TRX principals for over a year on the development and sales of premium cannabis products, which are now sold through provincially licensed retailers in seven Canadian provinces and territories. In conjunction with the TRX acquisition the TRX principals are now working for the benefit of Radient, and the Company is optimistic on this future potential.
Radient recently announced a partnership agreement with All Good to produce unique cannabis pre-roll products, to design and supply a modular-designed assembly and packaging facility to produce cannabis pre-roll products. The facility will operate in Radient's existing Edmonton II licenced plant, and first phase installation has been completed. All Good has designed the facility to scale production capacity to at least 10 million cannabis pre-roll units (1 million packages) per month once full-scale modular build out is reached, and All Good has already secured the supply of the equipment required to reach full-scale build out.
Radient now plans to produce and sell cannabis pre-roll products to licenced retailers in Canada. The pre-roll design parameters include a cigarette-style cylinder format and craft grown, terpene rich, high THC, non-irradiated cannabis. Pre-roll units will be packaged in a high quality 10-unit humidity protected box and will be marketed to discerning cannabis users. Staffing for the pre-roll production facility is in place and initial pre-roll production and sales to licenced retailers is expected in subsequent quarters.
Radient recently received from Health Canada an amendment to its Standard Processing Licence for the sale of dried and fresh cannabis products to authorized cannabis retailers and Sale for Medical Purposes licence holders. The Company has also received from Health Canada a Sale for Medical Purposes licence, allowing the Company to supply and sell cannabis products to patients who hold prescriptions from authorized healthcare providers. These licence amendments represent a significant milestone for the Company and allow the Company to expand its offerings and bring quality craft dried and fresh cannabis to the regulated market. With these licence approvals, the Company is now able to sell high-quality products to the entire Canadian cannabis market for both medical and non-medical use.
