LONDON, August 17th, 2021 - Materia, a leading processor and distributor of medical cannabis and CBD wellness products across Europe, is pleased to announce that its wholly-owned subsidiary Materia Deutschland GmbH ("Materia Deutschland"), has entered into an agreement with German medical cannabis manufacturer Eurox Pharma GmbH ("Eurox Pharma"), becoming one of Eurox Pharma's selected distribution partners for its medical cannabis extracts.

 

The agreement represents a new line of products for Materia Deutschland's curated portfolio and complements its sales team's focus on expanding its national pharmacy network, including all pharmacies who currently dispense medical cannabis extracts.

 

Extracts are the fastest growing format in Germany's medical cannabis market, exhibiting approximately +62% sequential quarterly growth at the beginning of this year1. As at the end of 2020, medical cannabis extracts had been distributed across almost one-fifth of public German pharmacies2.

 

"We're proud to partner with a company as innovative as Eurox Pharma in advancing the German market. By pairing their extracts with our distribution expertise, we're confident this partnership will be a great success for both of us," said Sebastian Blöte, Managing Director, Germany of Materia Deutschland. "We know many pharmacies are asking for high quality extracts, so this supports our goal of rapidly broadening our customer base."

 

Dr. Bernhard Babel, CEO of Eurox Pharma, added, "All our Eurox-branded medicinal products are produced in a state-of-the-art German facility and adhere to the highest EU and German standards. Eurox provide the highest quality product whilst maintaining uncompromising safety standards to ensure a stable supply and full control of our entire supply chain - from selecting the plant material to manufacturing and distribution. To that end, we most carefully select our partners, and we are therefore very pleased to announce our distribution partnership with Materia."
