Fiscal 2022 Crop Update:

"We look forward to a robust 2022 growing season. GR1, our 36 Acre Medley Range, is now in full swing with an additional packing line commissioning in the next couple of months. GR2, our Beef Steak Range, begins full production within the next week. The range is now stable with a full complement of competent labour and seasoned management, and we expect yields, revenues, and EBITDA at our GR2 Range to return to normalized annual levels," said Vincent Narang, Chief Executive Officer of Green Rise.

Mr. Narang further added, "The shipping at the Company's GR1 Range, started last month, on 27 Acres of Medley and 9 Acres on Piccolo varieties. The alignment to full Medley production for 2022 at GR1 provides focus to our staff and labour as well as a high-demand product under contract pricing, adding greater certainty to our yields, revenues, and return to shareholders."

The Company continues to monitor its labor and input costs and resulting inflationary pressures. Costs to date are as budgeted.
