About Green Farmers Australia
Green Farmers, Australia's largest grower of B2B medicinal cannabis, operates a 43,000 sq.ft state-of-the-art greenhouse in Bunyip, Victoria, producing premium wholesale flower. Due to high demand, it has expanded with a new 100,000 sq.ft facility in Lismore, New South Wales, set for production in 2024.
Owned by Biortica Agrimed, the company also operates Apollo Green, a leading nursery in Ottawa, Canada, that develops market-defining genetics for the global cannabis industry. Its integrated model, complete with packaging and distribution, covers the entire lifespan of the medicinal product for the Australian market.
After beginning its operations in October 2021, Green Farmers introduced a cannabis compliance software system to oversee its operations from compliance to inventory. However, deficiencies soon became apparent.
Matthew Turner, CFO of Green Farmers, states, "While the software met basic compliance needs, it failed in broader applications. As a B2B entity, we manage a diverse set of client requirements, ranging from different drying methods to handling multiple cannabis strains simultaneously."
"Our previous system struggled to track our operations pre-harvest, let alone post-harvest when it gets extremely complex. We had significant delays in paperwork, meaning we had to bring in external administrative hires just for data entry. Access to any kind of real-time information was impossible meaning we didn’t have a clear view of what was happening at the facility at any given time.”
Matthew emphasizes, "We were struggling - and the need for a more competent system was very evident."
Matthew shares, "We were drawn to Elevated Signals due to its strong reputation in the cannabis industry and its adaptability. It not only supports our current processes but also aids in managing our growing complexity as we expand."
Elevated Signals' manufacturing software revolutionizes inventory, quality, and compliance management, enhancing cannabis production. By providing real-time operations data, it boosts productivity and profitability.
In October 2022, Green Farmers smoothly implemented Elevated Signals. "The team made the transition seamless," says Matthew.
"The software facilitates complex workflows tailored to each of our customers, as a result, all paperwork is completed instantly, we’re no longer drowning in admin tasks and we have transparent facility insights.”
Owing to optimized processes, Green Farmers' Victoria facility now produces sought-after premium products for its B2B clientele across Australia. Given that its products are pre-sold till the end of 2024, its new greenhouse in New South Wales is soon to enter production to help meet demand.
Matthew concludes, "With Australia's rising demand for premium medical cannabis products, our rapid growth relies heavily on efficient operational systems. Elevated Signals has significantly streamlined our operations, from inventory management to quality assurance. Naturally, we incorporated it into our second facility."
