C3 Industries is launching a new, 15,000 square foot manufacturing facility in St. Louis Missouri, with operations expected to begin this month. The company has also finalized an exclusive licensing partnership with Kiva Confections to produce Missouri edibles for the state’s market. C3 will produce Kiva’s full brand suite, including Lost Farm gummies, Camino gummies, Petra mints, Terra chocolate bites, and Kiva Bars.
The facility will start producing cannabis concentrates and cartridges under the C3 brand Galactic Meds. Sales are expected to begin in the first quarter of 2022. The Kiva line is expected to begin supplying Missouri dispensaries in the second or third quarter. These include C3’s St. Charles dispensary, as well as its locations in Columbia, St. Robert, Cape Girardeau, and Sunset Hills.
The new St. Louis location joins C3 Industries’ growing roster of production facilities. The company began operations in 2018 in Portland, Oregon, and has since added cultivation and manufacturing facilities in Michigan and Massachusetts.
“Our partnership with Kiva, one of the country’s most popular cannabis brands, is a testament to our expert manufacturing capabilities and is an exciting milestone for C3. We look forward to producing best-in-class cannabis products in the new facility and supplying Missouri dispensaries with a portfolio of best-selling products across all categories,” said C3 Industries CEO Ankur Rungta in a press release.
