By the end of its second year, the hub was producing & packaging 25,000 retail-ready units daily, ranging from vape cartridges to packaged flower.
Aldin drafted, implemented, and trained on all operational procedures for the 2020 testing regulation changes for all facilities of a cannabis organization.
This included training retail teams at 9 locations on how to read COAs and changing product flows to stay within compliance with new regulations at 2 cultivation sites, 2 processing labs, 1 kitchen, and 1 production/distribution facility.

Aldin grew a cannabis company from a total of 4 retail stores to 9 retail locations, while continually increasing and meeting production goals to appropriately supply all locations. This was met with increased production by more than 75% due to the acquisition of retail stores that were double the volume of the original 4 locations.
