CEO of Anspec, Peter Comerford provides an insight into the burgeoning landscape of the medicinal cannabis industry in Australia and Anspec’s role in its growth.
Talking about cannabis as a medicine can become a full-time job as this global tsunami of an industry rolls across the globe. Thankfully, at Anspec we managed to carve out a unique leadership position in the Australian medicinal cannabis industry and it is still only a small part of what we do.
We have an annual financial turnover larger than many of the largest cannabis companies in the world. For 27 years we have been in the business of importing and exporting pharmaceuticals, especially for compassionate access, shortage supply and for developing nations. For the last 12 of those years we were the prime vendor for pharmaceuticals and health products to our Australian Defence Forces.
