Our Story

Aphria Inc. was founded in 2013 with a vision to produce high-quality cannabis in the most natural growing conditions.

We saw a future in cannabis and decided to apply more than 60 years of commercial agriculture and greenhouse expertise to grow a few medical cannabis plants.

Those initial plants grew into a few million, and we have since become a premier global cannabis company.

With a focus on sustainability, our state-of-the-art greenhouses and cultivation operations, processing and distribution facilities and first-class laboratories make Aphria one of the world’s leading fully-integrated cannabis companies.
