Local hemp line finding market but needs to import

Jamaica Observer
THE locally based Green Hills line of hemp products needs to import hundreds of pounds of hemp to fill its growing customer demand. Green Hills Distributors started selling hemp seeds, hemp protein, hemp coffee and hemp flour earlier this year. The company quickly found that Jamaica couldn't meet its price and supply requirements despite being known as a herb- producing nation. "Hemp supplies in Jamaica are inconsistent and small," principal Ricardo Keith told the Sunday Finance in an interview at the Sovereign Centre in Kingston. He added that Canandian investors are planning to produce large acreages of the plant in the island. This should result in the company using local supplies by 2016, he reasoned.
