Industrial hemp is now being rediscovered worldwide, after decades of being on the fringes of industry. AFI foresees decades of new innovations in hemp – new uses for its extraordinary fibre and hurd, valuable new discoveries from its leaf extracts, and new nutritional applications from its seeds.
In-house vertical integration, with expertise from breeding, agricultural practice, manufacturing and product realisation, allows AFI to bring innovation to a wide range of industries. AFI’s focus on collaboration and partnership allows AFI to seamlessly bring in additional expertise from research and industry, and to operate internationally from its base in Australia.
These approaches mean that AFI is continually generating new uses for hemp, and seeking partners that can bring these innovations to market.
