WA hemp growers poised for record harvest

CLIENT: HEMP PROCESSORS WA PTY LTD
OUTLET: THE WEST AUSTRALIAN

The State’s hemp farmers are harvesting their biggest haul yet — and for the first time seeds will be commercially processed in WA instead of being sent east.  Hemp Processors WA — established by local businessmen Steve Thomas and Peter Munachen — is about to finish harvesting its 15ha crop at Margaret River, while almost another 480ha, mostly in the South West, will be harvested by about 30 other licensed growers this month.  At the same time, providing a major shot in the arm for the industry, Hemp Processors WA has imported the State’s first large scale, commercial processing machinery that can sort and de-hull seeds, making them suitable for a wide range of food.
