InterCure (TASE: INCR), announced that subsidiary Canndoc has entered into a strategic distribution agreement with Salomon, Levin, Elstein (S.L.E.,) which is owned by Teva Pharmaceuticals Industries (NYSE: and TASE: TEVA).
Under terms of the agreement, S.L.E. will distribute Canndoc’s GMP products to pharma clients, including hospitals, health maintenance organizations (HMOs) and all pharmacies in Israel, including pharmacy chains. In the future, as regulatory approvals allow, S.L.E. will provide logistics capability for exporting Canndoc’s products to countries that support regulations for the sale and distribution of cannabis products for medical use.
S.L.E. is one of Israel’s leading companies for providing health logistics services and distributes products from dozens of local and international companies. S.L.E. is licensed by the Israeli Ministry of Health, and also holds a GDP distribution license.
“Our agreement with S.L.E., Israel’s leading company in distributing medical products, creates a complete supporting platform for supplying Canndoc’s GMP products to any location in Israel and for countries with similar regulations,” said Canndoc’s Chairman Ehud Barak. “Through its S.L.E. partnership, Canndoc has aligned itself with one of the most prominent pharmaceutical companies in the world, for the distribution of cannabis-based medical treatments to countries that recognize the value of these medicines for people in need.”
S.L.E. CEO Aviad Bossi adds, “The agreement brings together our well-established pharmaceutical distribution network with Canndoc’s high quality medical cannabis industry presence and market leadership. Beyond the operations in Israel, this agreement will provide Canndoc significant logistical capabilities that can support Canndoc’s exporting operations from Israel.”
The distribution agreement is set for a 3-year term and includes a mechanism for automatic extension periods of two years each.
Canndoc is one of the first licensed producers, with its GMP-approved medical cannabis Rx products being sold in pharmacies. The engagement in this distribution agreement will broaden Canndoc’s ability to distribute GMP products to its patients within the S.L.E. pharmacy network throughout Israel. In addition, S.L.E. will provide Canndoc significant logistical capabilities in the future supporting Canndoc’s ability to export its products to countries with consistent regulation for the sale and distribution of cannabis products for medical use.
