Green Point Research, Palmetto Industries Partner For Industrial Hemp Storage Bags
Green Point Research (GPR), an international phytocannabinoid-rich biomass originator and processor, has established a partnership with Palmetto Industries International. Inc. to develop and design a new industry-standard hemp storage bag that prevents mold and mildew.
As the nascent hemp industry prepares for significant growth in the near future, establishing operating standards is increasingly important for the entire supply chain. While hemp is more resistant to illness than many other plants, it can be particularly susceptible to the absorption and retention of water after harvest. If the processing and storage conditions are not actively managed it is possible to develop a variety of diseases. The proprietary weave design newly developed by GPR and Palmetto prevents the absorption of water and moisture in the stored hemp plants.
The single-use hemp bags are 100% recyclable and are food safe certified (ISO22000), an internationally recognized designation for food safety and quality. Palmetto will launch a recycling program for farmers to easily return their bags and remain sustainable. The hemp bags will come in various sizes, including bulk bags, which are designed to hold over 500 pounds, aiding in the industry’s standardized storing and shipping needs. There will also be end-to-end visibility with blockchain tracking through the integration of QR codes to provide transparency of the plant supply chain from farm into storage, to dryer and finally to the processor.
