Cannabis pioneer Langdon Brown to build Australia’s first factory for processing of hemp fibre for domestic and export markets
Southern Cross Hemp Oil CEO Langdon Brown, who played an instrumental role over the last decade in bringing about the legalization of medicinal cannabis in Australia, and who has since become one of the country’s leading advocates for industrial uses of hemp, has secured $50 million in financial backing to build Australia’s first manufacturing plant for processing hemp fibre.
Mr. Brown hopes to make Australia a leading producer of feedstock for hemp-based products, including hemp-based plastic beads that hold the potential to revolutionize food packaging by providing a biodegradable alternative to traditional non-biodegradable plastic.
Mr. Brown told Australian media that he is looking to purchase up to 100 acres of land for the maufacturing plant in Murwillumbah, that would also include a tourism facility where the public could be educated about hemp’s many commercial and industrial uses.
