Mr. Cacioppo continued, “We are focused on further improving our profitability and have commenced initiatives that include reducing our green waste, increasing our yields and potency, as well as the introduction of new higher margin products across our vertical markets to achieve our goal. Furthermore, we aim to create more connections and collaboration between our retail stores and grower processor operations to ensure optimum experiences for our customers. Todd brings the necessary experience and expertise to lead this charge and we are excited to welcome him to Jushi.”
