A group of keen hemp producers, processors and industry supporters shuffled into the Breakfast Creek Hotel in Brisbane on Wednesday night to officially form Queensland’s first representative hemp growers association in what is a major step for the State’s industry.

Unofficially known as iHemp Queensland, the body is the final member to join the Australian Hemp Council (AHC), a seven member organisation with representatives from each state and the Northern Territory.

The group is distinctive to other hemp organisations as it exclusively represents the industry’s growers and processors

The national body wants to give producers a national unified presence and voice when communicating with government and community.
