CALGARY, Alberta, July 15, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Maple Leaf Green World Inc. (“Maple Leaf” or the “Company”), (CSE: MGW) and (OTCQB: MGWFF), is pleased to announce that it has retained the services of William Rogers and his team to join the Company’s cultivation operation in California as the Operations Manager, replacing the previous cultivation team.
Mr. Rogers has over 18 years of cannabis and hemp experience in oil extraction, product development, genetics breeding techniques, and greenhouse automation design. Mr. Rogers played key roles in several cannabis and hemp operations including his own licensed CBD farm in California that focuses on zero waste and renewable energy sources.

“My team and I are excited to join Maple Leaf. Their farm is great and similar to operations we’ve managed in the past. I believe we can synergize both our techniques and methodologies to produce a great product and a higher yield,” said William Rogers, Operations Manager – California.
“We are excited to have Mr. Rogers and his team join Maple Leaf. Their ideas align perfectly with our goals and vision. He brings significant industry experience and has the equipment and knowledge in oil extraction that will add great value to the company by allowing us to bring this process in-house,” said Raymond Lai, President & CEO of Maple Leaf.

The Company is also pleased to report that the Swissx crop, Swissx Melon, is showing beautiful growth. The plants will be transferred into larger pots and allocated to the greenhouses later this week. The cultivation team anticipates that they can begin cutting clones in the next few weeks to ensure a consistent supply of healthy female plants. The Company will continue with a staggered planting approach with the first harvest estimated for September.
