: Unyte Hemp National Cultivation Centre, Hemp Awareness Evening


The sunshine was in abundance as were visitors at Unyte Hemp’s Awareness Evening on Friday 20th September.

Unyte Hemp stepped into the Industrial Hemp Market earlier this year and in doing so, created their National Cultivation Centre near Market Harborough, Leicestershire.

Taking a break part way through this year’s hemp harvest, the evening was held to bring together local farmers and interested parties alike.

The evening was very well attended with over 100 people turning up including farmers, local councillors, business people, students and store owners. Some from as far afield as Devon, Essex and Manchester. All with some level of interest in Unyte, Hemp or Cannabis and eager to find out what’s been going on and how they can get involved or benefit in the Hemp marketplace. NIAB, The Andersons Centre and specialist machinery manufacturers were also on hand.

Garry Stevens Smith, Group CEO and Jamie Bartley, Operations Director opened the event with an informal introduction and brief overview to the Unyte Group, it’s plans and business model. With detail around this years hemp crop and the ongoing data study. Then the wider team were on hand including John and Roger Clarke the farmers responsible for this years crop and developing the National Cultivation Centre, along with other experts to answer any questions to the attendees.

The food flowed well, as did the drink, into the evening.
