Organigram Lays Off 220 Workers, Will Cultivate Less Cannabis Than Expected

Organigram Holdings Inc. is laying off at least 220 employees — and is warning more bad news could be on the way.

The Moncton-based cannabis company said Friday the cuts will impact a quarter of its staff, but make the workforce leaner, more flexible and better prepared to align its production capacity with market conditions.

“These decisions are never easy to make, but we are committed to ensuring the company is appropriately sized relative to market conditions,” Organigram chief executive Greg Engel said in a statement.
