Industrial Hemp Contributing to Alberta’s Economic Diversification
Innovations in agriculture are often cited as prime contributors to diversifying Alberta’s economy. Take development of industrial hemp for example. The industry appears on the surface to be a great fit for job creation in agriculture and applied manufacturing. The hold ups however are well known and substantial as cited in a discouraging overview contained in a New Frontiers Data article appearing this past July.
“Discouraged?” Hardly, but then we have insider information about what’s up in Alberta. Perry Kinkaide’s interview of Jesse Hahn, Vice President of Natural Fibre Technologies shines a bright light on the prospects and progress for the industry in Alberta. Jesse has a deep and wide network of people who are well aware of the issues in growing Alberta’s industrial hemp chain.
