Hemp Foods have been made LEGAL today!! This is an amazing result for Australia. We have finally caught up with the rest of the world, and it will have great results on lots of levels, for your health, as hemp is nutritious, and also for the farmers who now have a sustainable and viable crop to grow. Here at ‘Hemp Co’ we are on target to grow Hemp this year, that will now have a dual purpose. Fibre for our building materials to build houses and seeds for our Food products. It’s a win win all round, not just for here in the South West of WA, but for the whole of Australia. It’s been a long 20 years of lobbying government! Common sense has finally prevailed.

Hemp Seed is now closer than ever before to been approved for sale for human consumption in Australia.
Despite worldwide acceptance of hemp seed as a food, Australia still prohibits sale of this product.
For the past 18 years, Food Standards Australia New Zealand (FSANZ) has patiently researched and assessed whether approval of hemp seeds should be granted. Repeatedly, FSANZ has recommended to the Federal Government Food Forum, which is part of the Council of Australian Governments (COAG), that approval be given. Unfortunately, certain Federal and State representatives have resisted approval, citing public perception that hemp could be confused with marijuana.
Today, the Board of FSANZ announced its recommendation of approval of hemp seed food. This food standards recommendation will be presented at the upcoming Food Forum meeting at COAG, scheduled for 28 April 2017.
Fingers crossed. This will be great for Hemp Co, as we have been working hard on a Hemp food range for a long time. Great for our farmers too, as there is now a crop that has a viable industry here in Australia.
