Australia and New Zealand have approved the sale of foods derived from hemp for human consumption. Hemp in Australia and New Zealand is cultivated under strict licensing arrangements and prior to this approval was only permitted for use as a source of fibre for clothing and building products.

“Short-term opportunities for Alberta companies exist for imported hemp foods brands to gain market share and establish brand awareness before Australia and New Zealand increase their own hemp foods production and processing capacities,” said provincial marketing official Albert Eringfeld.

Alberta companies interested in exhibiting at Fine Food Australia 2018 in September can contact Eringfeld at 780-415-4814.
