We’re here to improve health and wellness, as well as provide tax revenue that will benefit the community,” said Cesar Cordero-Krüger, Zen Leaf Partner and CEO of Iaso Corp., Holding Co. of HBP Labs. “Conveniently accessible in a vibrant shopping plaza right in the heart of the most populated city in Puerto Rico – we couldn’t ask for a better location. In combining our strengths with Zen Leaf’s, we will further elevate both of our organizations’ best-in-class products, services and operations for the benefit of our patients and employees.”

HBP Labs managed the build-out in San Juan. Mr. Cordero-Krüger has a proven 20+ year track record of commercial real estate development, plus extensive cannabis experience that enabled efficient navigation of the local regulatory and compliance environment to secure all necessary entitlements for facility completion. Additionally, Iaso Corp. and its subsidiaries have demonstrated expertise in plant tissue culture, aeroponic cultivation, and separation techchnologies that can be applied to cultivation and processing, to produce premium products that, in turn, can be distributed via Zen Leaf.
