In collaboration with local farmers and channel partners, Midwest Hemp Technology processes Kansas-grown hemp for industrial purposes.

Hemp grain is cleaned, sorted, dehulled and pressed to make food for humans and animals. Midwest Hemp Technology aims to create a regional supply chain. The company makes a variety of hemp based products from Kansas farms for use around the country.

“Hemp fiber and grain crops have the potential to supply food for humans and animals, textiles, plastic replacements, wood alternatives, bio-adsorbents and many other environmentally friendly products, managing partner Troy Palmer said. “The plant grows quickly with less water than corn or soybeans and it captures carbon in the atmosphere. There are quite literally thousands of reasons why hemp is important to American agriculture and industry. We are so proud to play a part in this crops’ reemergence.”
