Despite restricted operations at the Voyage facility in August as a result of local forest fires in the area, unaudited sales for the month of August were approximately $2.5 million. Along with strong provincial re-orders, Heritage continues to see improvements in both market penetration and new listings, setting the stage for further growth in the coming months.
In Ontario, Heritage gained seven new listings across multiple categories, giving Heritage a total of 16 SKUs in Canada’s largest market. Sales to the OCS in calendar Q3 more than doubled over calendar Q2. Retailer feedback has been positive, and the Company anticipates adding additional SKUs in November.
Western Canada remains the largest market for Heritage, where the Company continues to see excellent re-order rates and continued acceptance for new listings resulting in additional growth. Alberta has recently executed a significant launch of Heritage products, with the Company shipping 28 new SKUs to the province in September and October. In BC, Heritage claimed 3% of total cannabis sales, while also increasing orders by 33% from calendar Q2 to calendar Q3. Orders in Saskatchewan rose by 190% sequentially in calendar Q3, with first flower products expected to be in market in November, fueling further sales growth heading into Fiscal 2022.
Flower Launch – Accessing 60% of the Canadian Cannabis Market
Heritage has launched 10 pre rolls and 6 flower skus in multiple provinces with encouraging provincial orders and plans on having distribution across Canada by the end of calendar Q1 2022. Entry into the largest market will inevitably continue to drive overall market share and revenue growth for Heritage.
