Sascha Mielcarek, Tilray’s General Manager for Europe, said, “We are very pleased to partner with Worldpharma. Tilray is once again establishing itself as a key player with solid expertise in the service of patient well-being.

It also serves as a hub supporting Tilray’s clinical research and product development efforts across Europe.
