Our crops come from hemp seed listed in the European certified seed catalogue, guaranteeing a THC level of less than 0.2 % (a lower rate than that imposed by other countries). Our hemp crops are grown without pesticides and irrigation. The seed is harvested at full maturity and in the best weather conditions by our producers. They know that their production will be paid according to the quality (humidity, impurities and proportion of immature seeds). By using efficient equipment, from delivery, the analyses (oleic acidity, peroxide value, humidity, impurity ratios) are carried out on each batch, which means that it can be sent to the human or animal food industries (bird and fishing sectors).
European consumption of hemp seed is increasing due to the success in North America and Asia of hemp oil, hulled seeds, proteins, flour and other food supplements (Omega 3, Omega 6, Vitamin E and amino acids).
