Hemp North produces tasty hemp seed products, including hemp seed snacks and cold-pressed hemp seed oils, straight from crops grown on their British family farm in Northumberland.
Hemp is one of the fastest-growing plants on the planet and absorbs four times as much CO2 as the same area of forest. As such, founders Hugh Wrangham and Alistair McLeod are on a mission to develop and scale hemp production in the UK, thereby mitigating the need to import hemp products from overseas.
No pesticides or herbicides are used to grow the hemp, which helps promote good soil health and allows wildlife to flourish in the hemp fields, especially bees and birds. All of the company’s products are 100% vegan and can be a good source of nutrition providing fibre, plant-based proteins with a full amino acid profile and essential fatty acids such as Omega 3 and 6 according to the brand’s clinical nutritionist.
The founders are working to reduce the use of single-use plastics and embrace packaging solutions that are minimal in plastic content. Over 75% of the brand’s current packaging can be easily recycled through standard kerbside collection.
Hemp North products can also be bought in refillable form from a variety of their UK stores and cafes. Use this map to find a Hemp North stockist near you and make sure to bring your own container!
