Diteba Laboratories Inc. files notice of intent

| Staff

Mississauga-based cannabis company Diteba Laboratories Inc. filed a notice of intent (NOI) on March 2 under the Bankruptcy and Insolvency Act, listing more than $15 million in liabilities, including nearly $8.2 owed to the CRA.

The company blames its financial hardship on the resistance of provinces and consumers to new and innovative cannabis products and the “stubborn resilience” of the flower, prerolls, and vapes markets, as well as the illicit market. 

All creditors are barred from commencing or continuing any actions against Diteba until the creditors handle the proposal.

Diteba Laboratories Inc. has thirty days from the date of filing the NOI to make a proposal.

The company already underwent a court-approved sale and investment solicitation process (SISP) in 2023, which resulted in the sale of its scientific contract research business. The same was approved in October. Diteba also operates a white-label cannabis processing and distribution business.

The company processes and packages cannabis vape products, milled cannabis flower, pre-rolls (traditional and infused), and whole cannabis flower and sells cannabis under the Common Ground brand.
