Making a Difference: The Hemp Cooperative Ireland
The Hemp Cooperative Ireland is a member-owned, registered cooperative with the aim of creating an infrastructure for farmers and local businesses to develop the hemp industry in Ireland. The Hemp Cooperative Ireland will support farmers to access resources, equipment, and markets through a national body and local hubs. A cooperative is a business owned and democratically controlled by the people who use its services, in our case our members.
One of our main aims is raising awareness within the farming community and the general public about the benefits of the industry. Ireland is renowned for its farming, however many farmers are disenchanted with the systems that govern food production.
