Hikurangi Enterprises has produced a trial crop of industrial hemp and has started research on utilising the plant for natural medicines and pharmaceutical products.
We are also working with industry and academic researchers on natural fibre composites using these plants, native flax and mycelium.
Regulatory changes in Australia and New Zealand should see hemp seed approved as a food product in 2017. These changes will create many new opportunities for landowners and processing facilities to be established on the East Coast.
