Cannabis Producer Tweed Inc. Triples Production Space with Purchase of Former Hershey Factory

Tweed Inc. has tripled its production capability at 1 Hershey Drive in Smiths Falls, Ontario, near Ottawa while filling a vacant piece of real estate that plagued the town for years.

The company announced this week its parent company, Canopy Growth, purchased the 42-acre site of the old Hershey Factory, making it the largest indoor cannabis production facility in Canada, and likely the world.

The building was purchased from a group of investors that included Bruce Linton, chairman and CEO of Canopy Growth, and the Smiths Falls-based Guy Saumure company.
