/UCW/ SPRING HOPE, NC – Hemp, Inc. (OTC PINK: HEMP), a global leader in the industrial hemp industry with the largest hemp mill in the western hemisphere, announced today that the Company’s role in supporting hemp production and manufacturing in North Carolina was recently featured in an October 7, 2017 Huffington Post article titled “Hemp Inc. Pioneers Industrial Hemp Revolution With North America’s Largest Industrial Hemp Processing Facility.” This indicates the company has positioned itself on the frontlines of America’s hemp revolution.
The Huffington Post article states that Hemp, Inc. “is quickly emerging as a pioneering force in what could be the next great industrial revolution.” The article also cited that, “All combined, Hemp, Inc. is now clearly positioned to be a major player in America’s $1 billion hemp CBD product market, and it would not be surprising to start seeing buyout speculation with respect to the company’s operational facilities. HEMP’s NuAxon Tech CO2 Supercritical Extractor is viewed as an expensive process within the industry, and the big reward behind it is a superior end-product that is potent and safe. The company’s 70,000 square-foot Spring Hope, North Carolina industrial hemp processing facility is the only one of this magnitude in North America. All of this creates a huge competitive advantage within the popular marketplace.”
Bruce Perlowin, CEO of Hemp, Inc. (OTC PINK: HEMP), said, “Actually, our multipurpose industrial hemp processing facility in Spring Hope, NC has expanded to 85,000 square feet. The resounding message of this Huffington Post article, that our Company is a ‘pioneering force’ in America’s hemp marketplace, reflects our commitment to transparency and mission to help farmers capture the financial benefits of cultivating these valuable and sustainable crops.” He continued, “As we outlined earlier this week, in a previous press release, we have 5 core infrastructures that we built and have been using… Industrial Hemp Manufacturing and Processing; Hemp Oil Extraction; Hemp Farming; Hemp Education; and, Marketing. These core infrastructures have created a strong platform for growth, now and into the future.”
“We are happy to see the scope and scale of our operations in North Carolina recognized by prominent publications such as Huffington Post. We are always seeking opportunities to educate the public and Hemp, Inc.’s shareholders about the latest developments taking shape at Hemp, Inc.,” said David Schmitt, COO of Hemp, Inc.’s wholly owned subsidiary, Industrial Hemp Manufacturing, LLC. “Our 85,000 square foot facility in Spring Hope, North Carolina, establishes us as a leader in the space and is putting North Carolina at the forefront of this new industry.”
Huffington Post also noted that since Hemp, Inc.’s processing facility became operational this summer, it will likely position “North Carolina as the primary hemp hub of North America.”
