According to an investor close to the deal, on Thursday a Nebraska-based company signed the first contract to supply US-grown hemp fiber to a sustainable apparel company.
Bastcore, LLC, purchases raw hemp grown by US farmers. It has a proprietary process for converting hemp stalks into commercial materials, for textiles, composites, and energy production.
Bastcore CEO John Lupien said in an announcement obtained by Business Insider, “This fiber supply contract marks a historic milestone in the U.S. Hemp Industry, and particularly for American-made hemp textiles, since the passage of the 2014 Farm Bill.”
