Canadian company to launch first ‘consumer-facing’ hemp brand
Hempco Canada Superfoods has launched a new range of hemp oil, seeds, superfoods, supergreens and snacks under its first consumer-facing hemp brand, PlanetHemp.
The British Columbia-based company is widely recognised as the sector leader and a key innovator, facilitating Canada’s entire hemp seed trade and successfully launching a number of first-to-market products including hemp protein powder, filtered hemp seed oil, hemp milk, hemp ice cream and hemp yogurt. It uses a unique five stage clean-up process to remove the majority of the seed shell or husk, rather than the industry standard two-stage process; this delivers a much better flavour profile for both the seed itself and all products manufactured from it, Hempco said.
The new consumer-facing range includes hemp protein superfood in three flavours, containing 37g of protein per 100g and boosted with alfalfa; shelled hemp seed, described as “amongst the highest quality available on the market being certified organic”; hemp oil, which is cold-pressed and filtered to ensure no additives contaminate the product and no goodness is depleted from the hemp seed itself; super mini bouchées, which are little snacks designed for healthy indulgence and available in forbidden fruit and cacao heaven variants; plus a line of supergreens – packed full of hemp, spirulina, barleygrass, wheatgrass, alfafa, chlorella, and cinnamon, they can be combined with water, juice, shakes or smoothies to offer a morning drink with a nutritious extra.
The Planet Hemp range is presented in clean and distinctive packaging, designed to reflect the natural, organic and environmentally friendly values of the business and products.
