SALINAS, Calif., July 02, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- In recognition of its ongoing commitment to Monterey County and its contributions to the Northern California economy, Salinas-based Indus Holdings, Inc. (CSE:INDS) has received the 2019 Agriculture Award from the Monterey County Business Council. The honor was presented June 29 at the council’s 24th Anniversary Economic Vitality Awards Gala at the Monterey Plaza Hotel.

"Monterey County Business Council is proud to recognize Indus Holdings, Inc. for their economic contributions here in Monterey County. We understand cannabis is a crop that is quickly earning a spot in the agricultural industry in California; we feel Indus deserves the recognition for the success of their company as they continue to grow worldwide,” said Kimbley Craig, President and CEO of Monterey County Business council.

The Agriculture Award not only recognizes the ongoing success of Indus’ licensed cultivation operations – 225,000 square feet of greenhouse space on 10 acres – near its corporate headquarters in Salinas, it also celebrates the bond between the company and its community.

“What began with just a handful of employees has grown into a team of over 300, with families and roots forever linked to this community,” says Indus Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer Robert Weakley. “Indus was born here and our success could not have been possible without their contributions. On behalf of everyone at Indus, I want to thank the Monterey County Business Council for this tremendous honor.”

Weakley, whom the council honored in 2013 with the Entrepreneurial Start-Up Award, was joined by members of the Indus team at the June 29 ceremony, which also paid tribute to local businesses in the categories of Health & Wellness, Higher Education & Research, and Hospitality & Tourism, among others.
