Hemp Industry Active
The new executive director of the Canadian Hemp Trade Alliance says the hemp industry is full of opportunities.
Kim Shukla says production is increasing with hemp products now on the shelves of mainstream stores like Sobey’s.
She notes producers are slowly trying to grow the industry, to avoid flooding the market when demand is still relatively small.
She says since hemp is still new to most farmers, there is still much room for improvement when it comes to production techniques.
Shukla, who lives in the Steinbach area, took on the position of executive director earlier this summer.
