Woody Nelson Launches Quality Services Offering

Service will provide quality management solutions for craft-scale cannabis producers

NELSON, BRITISH COLUMBIA – OCTOBER 14, 2022 – Woody Nelson, cultivators of precision-grown craft cannabis and producers of ultra-premium cannabis products, announced a new business offering providing managed Quality Assurance (QA) services and has onboarded its first customer, a BC micro-processor, micro-cultivator.

The managed QA service model provides all craft-scale producers with the tools and frameworks required to establish a comprehensive quality assurance program. Customers can utilize an expert team to manage vital activities related to compliance, regulatory affairs, and quality management while benefiting from more efficient production, greater operational visibility, and improved consumer safety.

“Quality Assurance and Quality Control services are critical for license holders in the cannabis industry,” says Karen Parent, Chief Compliance and Regulatory Affairs Officer at Woody Nelson. “Our QA Service offerings provide guidance, tools, and support to craft-scale producers, enabling them to bring quality to the forefront and remain compliant.”

Woody Nelson QA Services bridges the gap between licensing and regulatory services and production optimization by providing customers with an integrated team delivery model, including responsibilities performed by Quality Assurance Persons (QAP).

“Craft-scale producers operate under stringent regulations but often lack the resources to support an internal full-stack quality management team. As the cannabis industry matures, we see the need for comprehensive quality management solutions accessible to craft-scale producers,” says Frank Marcus, Chief Operations Officer at Woody Nelson. “By providing mission-critical quality services, we are addressing a key challenge for smaller producers who may have difficulty sourcing suitable QA providers. Micro-cultivators and micro-processors can benefit from an integrated QA service team and a quality management program designed for their specific needs and developed to operate within Woody Nelson’s production standards and quality framework.”

The service scope encompasses the planning and support activities related to executing and monitoring a robust quality management system, including SOP development and management, quality KPIs, security and financial reporting, safety and risk management planning, and vendor qualification. The QA Service team provides regulatory guidance, license and application management, and performs facility performance analysis, including training sessions with customers to ensure quality knowledge transfer.
