mlgwMaple Leaf Green World, Inc takes on an ecological mission as an agriculture business. It is a provider of agricultural solutions and has partnered with various organizations to promote reforestation and renewable energy. Many of its projects are in China, but it is registered in Canada as a wholly owned foreign enterprise. Recently, it has also taken steps to become a marijuana cultivator in Canada.

The company, founded in 2005, was named Maple Leaf Reforestation, Inc before changing to its current name.

Maple Leaf Green World, Inc is now traded in the TSX Venture Exchange under the symbol MGW. Its market cap is at CAD 5.41 M.

One of Maple Leaf’s major endeavors was the Inner Mongolia Greenhouse Project, which aimed to fight desertification in certain parts of China. Maple Leaf, through its subsidiary named Inner Mongolia Maple Leaf Reforestation Co Ltd, cultivated and sold tree seedlings for this cause. For this project alone, it had two greenhouses outfitted with Chinese and Dutch technologies. Eventually, the subsidiary was sold to a private group in Canada.

Maple Leaf also participates in yellowhorn tree projects in China’s Jimsar county as well as in several parts of Europe. Yellowhorn trees are used for various purposes such as anti-desertification, production of biodiesel, cooking, and several forms of medication. Maple Leaf is involved in the distribution of yellowhorn products.

Other operations of the company include marketing and distribution of agricultural products. In China, it markets Ellepress peat pellets and distributes Agro Balt peat moss. It also distributes soil enhancement products from different companies.

Maple Leaf Green World’s foray into the marijuana industry started in July 2014, when it submitted its application for a license under the Marihuana for Medical Purposes Regulations (MMPR) in Canada. The following September, it announced that it will also put up a medical marijuana grow operation in the USA.

Current leaders at Maple Leaf Green World are CEO and President Raymond Lai, CFO Daniel Chu, and Head of Medical Marijuana Project and VP of Operations Joe Wong.
