The Australian Medicinal Cannabis Association (AMCA) has formed a sub-group to represent the interests of manufacturers following the success of a similar initiative for cultivators.

AMCA recently established the Australian Cannabis Cultivators (ACC) sub-association, which now has more than 40 members and is chaired by board director Emily Rigby.

AMCA chair Dr Teresa Nicoletti said: “Like the ACC and other sub-associations, the [manufacturers group] will provide a hands-on forum for individuals to discuss and promote best practice, equipment and machinery options, and important issues affecting manufacture under the current regulatory framework.” 

Bryan Ebstyne, AMCA board director and one of the proposed members of a steering committee for the new sub-association, added: “This latest initiative provides a community for another group of like-minded members to meet and discuss areas of mutual interest and concern.”

AMCA said the sub-association is open to domestic manufacturers as well as those importing bulk medicinal cannabis flower which is then manufactured locally into finished products for supply to patients.

As with its other sub-associations, membership is complimentary for relevant AMCA members.
