Last February, New Zealand legalized the cultivation and manufacturing of the industrial hemp plant. The iHemp summit in Wellington, New Zealand will be held on July 5th and 6th will promote the newly legalized Industrial Hemp industry in the country. iHemp will provide experts involved in companies, farming, science, investing, and government regulations the opportunity to collaborate and learn about the multi-faceted industrial hemp plant.
The basis of the summit will be to develop cooperation with those interested and involve in the industry locally and internationally. There will be a number of key note speakers including Mack Macintosh, the Chairman of the New Zealand Hemp Industry Association; Richard Barge, Director of Hemptastic; Phil Warner, Founder and CEO of EcoFibre; and Jeff Kostuik, Director of Operations of Hemp Genetics International.
The conference will focus on the use of industrial hemp for food, fibre, and medicine. It will also focus on cultivation techniques, processing technology, and the wide array of different products that can be produced from the industrial hemp plant.
