The Ontario Cannabis Store says they will be introducing a new “flow-through” program by late summer to allow retailers to order products not stocked in the OCS warehouse.

The program will initially launch as a pilot project with a limited number of SKUs from a test group of cannabis producers and retail stores. Retailers will be able to choose from selected products from the OCS flow-through catalogue, and OCS will then facilitate the wholesale purchase and shipment to retailers.

The program will allow Ontario’s cannabis distributor to offer more products to their growing number of retailers, such as new SKUs, products that have a short shelf life or are slower-moving, and could even potentially include live cannabis plants by this winter. It would also allow some retailers to carry products their competitors might not carry.

The OCS will gradually launch the program beginning in September, before adding other products in the fall and winter.

“Ordering via flow-throughs results in fresher products, the ability to order short shelf life and seasonal products, and an opportunity to test out new SKUs,” says Daffyd Roderick, Senior Director, Communications & Social Responsibility.

The program would also include the opportunity for producers to provide “Store Brand” products that feature a branding element associated with a licenced retailer.

Any products listed in either the general catalogue or the flow-through model, including store brand products, will still be available to all retailers. The OCS has also been offering limited release SKUs.

Cannabis producers in Ontario who want to participate in the new flow-through program will need to be able to fill orders within seven days, those outside Ontario will need to do so in 10-14 days.
