Medicinal Organic Cannabis Australia (MOCA) Pty Ltd was founded in March 2017 and incorporated in June 2017. Australian State and Federal medical cannabis import, export and wholesale licences were awarded to MOCA in 2018. Directors, Alessandro Sorbello and Emanuela Ispani, founded the Company following changes to Australian legislation. The directors commenced with scientific research to develop MOCA’s product range. MOCA now has four PhD’s on the team and has converted its knowledge base to develop a product range of 21 organic medicines. Ten products developed by our scientific team under the MOCA brand and 11 products sourced from third party manufacturers, including CBDfx and Stanley Brothers. All our products are approved by the Australian Government (TGA) and can be prescribed by medical practitioners to treat a range of conditions including:
- chronic pain
- chemotherapy-induced nausea and vomiting
- palliative care indications
- cancer pain
- spasticity from neurological conditions
- anorexia and other conditions.
The three key gateways to importing and supplying medical cannabis medicines by wholesale in Australia are:
- State and Federal Government licenses to import and wholesale
- Import permits from the Office of Drug Control (ODC)
- Product approvals by the TGA
MOCA has all three gateways approved with licences, permits and approvals in hand.

We are equity crowd-sourced funding to manufacture our products and import into Australia for immediate sale. Once our products are manufactured and ready for import, MOCA’s innovative stock management and distribution model kicks in.
In conjunction with international standards, MOCA has developed proprietary production and manufacturing protocols and procedures. These operational methods of operation are approved at State and Federal level by the New South Wales Ministry of Health and the Office of Drug Control (ODC). They are designed to manage and meet its extensive regulatory compliance for the storage and handling of medical cannabis products.
These protocols mean that MOCA is ‘hands free’ and our entire process for transport, storage and distribution of our products are handled by Specialised global pharmaceutical contractors in their logistics centre.
This process eliminates the need for expensive proprietary warehousing costs and logistics staff, thus significantly reducing the Company’s operating costs to supply the products to medical professionals.

Our Approach to Manufacturing Products
We consider the ‘Triple Bottom line’ (People, Planet, Profit) the ethical measure of business. MOCA’s investment principle determines the impact on the environment, the social perspective, and our corporate governance.Whilst our current focus is on manufacturing and importing medical cannabis products, we are oriented on the entire ‘seed to sale’ process. At MOCA we believe that planting with appropriate organic practices can heal the soil and the earth and thus in turn, can heal its populace.
MOCA works with cultivators and purchases raw materials for manufacture, without intermediaries. It is for this reason that we influence and control the entire process from soil preparation to genetic selection to cultivation and harvest to manufacturing and wholesale.
Our aim is to offer a viable, affordable, plant based solution based on ethical practices. MOCA expands the traditional reporting framework to take into account social and environmental performance in addition to financial performance.
