Hemp: how can we achieve a Green Recovery?
The European Industrial Hemp Association (EIHA) represents the common interests of hemp farmers, producers and traders working with hemp fibres, shives, seeds, leaves and cannabinoids. EIHA’s mission is to develop a single and safe common market of high-quality hemp products, inspired by the principle of social, environmental and economic sustainability. EIHA believes in a sustainable economic model that reconciles agriculture, industry and environment. For this reason, the association promotes the development on the EU territory of local, yet globally connected value chains, capable of delivering the multiple ecosystem services that hemp has to offer.
Our main task is to serve, protect and represent the hemp sector in the EU and international policy-making.
EIHA covers different areas for the application of hemp, namely its use for construction materials, textiles, plastics, bio-composites, cosmetics, feed, food and supplements. Our network encompasses operators from 25 EU Member States and 12 non-EU countries, including members in North America and the Asia Pacific. In total, EIHA acts on behalf of more than 250 members that represent the entire industrial hemp production chain, from seed to shelf.
