After working as a grower with some of the leading agriculture companies in Israel, Shlomo moved to Australia and managed a 350 acre cut flower horticulture operation.

In 1992, Shlomo moved to Portugal, to manage another large-scale project (24 hectares) where he oversaw the construction of large and modern greenhouses that were designed to produce several millions young plants per season for the export market. The company, under his management, produced an average of 6-7 million young plants per season – some 250,000 young plants per week. The company exported its product under very strict E.U. phytosanitary regulations mostly to the U.K. and Holland but also to Croatia, Denmark, Belgium, as well as other north European countries.
Shlomo has immigrated with his family to Canada in 2002 and he worked as a Head Grower, initially in B.C. and more recently in Ontario, with some of the leading producers of young plants in the industry.
Since 2014, Shlomo has worked with number of the largest L.P.s’ in Canada, where he worked as a Master Cannabis Grower, assisted in maximising production as well as sharing the “know how” involved in growing successfully on a commercial scale, while complying with Health Canada regulations.
