Online PR News – 04-August-2014 – Denver, Colorado – Healthy Seeds and Nuts, LLC, announced today the launch of Hemp-Connect (www.hemp-connect.net), an online wholesale marketplace dedicated to industrial hemp.
Catherine Hearn, owner and President, stated "The industrial hemp market has grown exponentially– fiber, protein powders, hemp hearts, milk, plastics, and Hempcrete are just a few of the many products that have been developed. Yet for manufacturers entering the industry, there is no easy way to find bulk raw materials. Growers who take a chance on hemp often take a lower price to grow on contract as there’s no easy way to find a buyer. Hemp-Connect will efficiently connect industry participants by giving them a central location to buy and sell hemp ingredients, processing services, and materials.”
While Hemp-Connect (www.hemp-connect.net) is designed to serve the global hemp market, the launch of the online marketplace comes at a time when U.S. entrepreneurs need it most. As the legalization of hemp continues to gain popularity at the state level, newcomers to the industry require access to industry experts and trusted resources. Cara Meeker, marketing manager for Healthy Seeds and Nuts, has seen the need first-hand. “In my state of Colorado where industrial hemp has recently become legal, there are already examples of growers and small businesses receiving conflicting or incorrect information about how to access seed, which varietals grow well in our climate, and what processing resources are realistically available to them. This information should be straight-forward and accessible, and no one should have to deal with those looking to make a quick buck off delete by offering services they can’t deliver. Hemp-Connect and our partners have years of expertise in the hemp industry, business management, and community involvement. Our goal is to be the most trusted resource in the industry.” Meeker sees Hemp-Connect as a way to give both new and established hemp entrepreneurs equal access to information and the opportunity for long-term success. The company expects the site’s capabilities to grow with increased demand.
