|Meet The Founder Who Was…
Born To Grow.
Claudio Mastronardi, MCM Acres’ & Natura Naturals’ Founder, has been around plants his entire life. Claudio’s parents, both children of farmers, taught him at an early age the importance of respecting nature and the responsibility involved with growing quality plants. Today, Claudio oversees the day to day operations of the 700,000+ sq.ft. greenhouse facility focusing on creating an optimal growing environment for hydroponic produce.
While growing hydroponic produce was the family business, Claudio was also researching the benefits of medical cannabis. Claudio’s compassion to help others led him to an opportunity with Health Canada to become a licensed producer under the Cannabis for Medical Purposes Regulations program (ACMPR). In order for Claudio to learn more about medical cannabis, he contacted Matt D. Cook, former Senior Director of the Colorado Department of Revenue and architect of the Colorado Medical Marjuana Act. Claudio then travelled to Colorado to meet with Matt D. Cook and to tour the Colorado Medical Industry. Claudio met with two very prominent doctors and with several owners of dispensaries and grow operations. Claudio was so inspired with the benefits of medical cannabis that he immediately began with the application process. Growing quality plants is Claudio’s expertise and becoming a licensed producer under the ACMPR is the perfect fit.
