With the recent changes in the regulatory environment AgriFutures Australia has identified hemp as important emerging industry. Therefore the Australian Industrial Hemp Conference comes at a particularly important time for the Australian industry to coordinate and to develop business models that will unlock the potential of this crop.
From Hempcrete, to beer, hemp fibre products, medicinal uses and seed, the dynamics of hemp business models vary widely. The Australian Industrial Hemp Conference provided an opportunity for interaction and for presentation of up to date information. These proceedings will be useful for those interested in hemp as a crop or more widely in businesses along hemp value chains.
