As part of the agreement, Brink’s and Canopy Growth will develop a cross-selling programme that enables Brink’s to provide services to Canopy Growth’s affiliated growers and retail customers.

Upon the collaboration commencing in 2018, Doug Pertz, Brink’s president and CEO, commented: “The rapidly growing cannabis industry requires security solutions for its products as well as its cash, and Brink’s is uniquely positioned to provide these solutions. Our partnership with Canopy Growth, a leading producer and exporter of cannabis, diversifies our customer base and leverages BGS’ global network of secure logistics operations. We look forward to building a strong relationship with Canopy Growth as it grows throughout Canada and continues to enter new international markets.”
