Gallery Brands aims to provide precisely dosed and expertly curated cannabis products to the Canadian market through its portfolio of brands. Each brand under the Gallery umbrella has a uniquely defined vision inspired by its individual founder, offering a diversified portfolio geared toward a wide range of consumers.
The Blessed brand, founded by Angelina Blessed and inspired by her career as a professional Muay Thai fighter, offers health and wellness focused cannabis products containing elements essential during intense athletic recovery. The flir brand, created by chocolatier and culinary enthusiast Riley Starr, celebrates exceptional ingredients alongside the experience of cannabis edibles, bringing epicurean cannabis-infused products to discerning food-forward consumers.
The Valens Company will use its patented in-house emulsion technology SōRSE by Valens to manufacture both the beverage and edible offerings for Blessed and flir. SōRSE by Valens technology transforms cannabis oil into water-soluble forms to infuse foods, liquids, and topicals without the taste or smell of cannabis, resulting in some of the most innovative cannabis-infused products in the Canadian market today.
Additionally, Valens’ enhanced edibles manufacturing platform will be used to formulate and produce premium confectionery products for the brand house. Gallery will distribute the Valens-manufactured products in Canada using its strong retail and distribution relationships.
"This partnership builds on our balanced portfolio of custom manufacturing agreements with brand houses looking to offer differentiated cannabis products to Canadian consumers across a range of categories,” said Tyler Robson, CEO, co-founder and chair of The Valens Company. “We are thrilled to partner with a company that recognizes and addresses unique customer preferences and is known in the industry for its innovative branding and strong retail and distribution network across the country."
