Tasmanian Alkaloids and AusCann announcement

Jeremy Rockliff, Minister for Primary Industries and Water

The Government welcomes today’s announcement that one of the world’s largest producers of alkaloid raw material based here in Tasmania, Tasmanian Alkaloids, is entering into a partnership with AusCann, an Australian medical cannabis stock supplier.

This announcement means that these two companies will work together to provide medical cannabis products in Australia from seed to final product under the nationally consistent rules we pushed for.

We have led the country in calling for a national, evidence-based response to provide safe access to medical cannabis, and this announcement means Tasmania will remain a central focus of the future use of these products.
