Rich Valley Hemp partners with Alberta Hemp Works in industrial Hemp projects, and market development. Rich Valley Hemp purchases seeds from Alberta Hemp Worksto plant industrial hemp and sell it back to Alberta Hemp Works.
The missing link: fibre processing
Alberta Hemp Works develops and sells hemp products that use the entire hemp plant. They believe that building and sustaining Alberta’s hemp industry depends on “whole plant utilization” and maximizing the potential of hemp fibre.
The missing link is decortication or processing capacity, turning raw stalks into usable hurd and bast fibre.
They want farmers to be able to market their hemp straw, rather than burn it and for manufacturers to buy local, rather than import. Decorticated materials can be used immediately or processed further for hundreds of different applications. See products
Both partners hope to develop a sustainable future market for hemp-based products.
