Interest high in hemp, but acres stable

The Western Producer
Demand for hemp cereal, hemp milk and hemp protein bars is booming in North America, but western Canadian hemp acreage is unlikely to expand in 2015.

Near bumper yields in 2013 and 2014 will cause a significant carryover into 2015-16.

As a result, hemp processors aren’t contracting additional acres in 2015 because they need to consume the existing supply, said Clarence Shwaluk, director of farm operations for Manitoba Harvest, a hemp foods manufacturer in Winnipeg.
