Among the applicants not selected, at least two were interested in locating in Burlington County.
Fresh Harvest Group, a Delaware-based company linked to a New England-based cannabis operation known as Nature’s Remedy, planned to open a 46,000-square-foot dispensary and indoor cultivation site in a warehouse/office building off Veterans Drive in the Commerce Square section of Burlington City.
Rumson-based Panacea Inc. also applied for one of the new dispensary licenses. The company has plans to build a 51,408-square-foot greenhouse and operations building and adjacent solar fields on the 197-acre farm off Bunting Bridge Road in New Hanover. The company specified the site would be solely used for cultivation and processing and that it was interested in locating a dispensary in one of two undisclosed towns in Burlington County.
Both Fresh Harvest and Panacea had applied for local approvals from Burlington City and New Hanover respectively to operate. Hearings on their applications were tabled and have not been rescheduled.
