Willow Biosciences Inc. (CSE: WLLW), a leading developer of biosynthetic production systems for plant-derived active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs) and intermediates, in early June announced its entry into an exclusive joint development agreement with Noramco Inc., a leading manufacturer of cannabinoids. Per the update, the two firms intend to collaboratively develop a yeast-based biosynthesis platform for the production and distribution of cannabidiol. Willow further notes that the work conducted through the agreement has the potential to open new and larger markets for CBD and related compounds. “Noramco is a world-class organization with a long history of developing APIs across numerous markets and is the market leader in synthetically-produced CBD,” Dr. Joseph Tucker, executive chairman of Willow, stated in the news release. “They are the obvious first choice as a partner to scale the development of our CBD biosynthesis program. Noramco’s global leadership in the production and sales of cannabinoids to pharmaceutical companies will naturally lead into manufacturing and sales into additional non-pharmaceutical markets.”
