History of the Hemp Feed Coalition
The Hemp Feed Coalition was continued from the Colorado Department of Agriculture, 2017 Hemp in Animal Feed study. Upon the studies completion a core group of stakeholders representing 12 different states came together to form a coalition to complete the Feed Additive Petition for the benefit of the Hemp industry as a whole.

The Hemp Feed Coalition is a diverse set of stakeholders whose mission is to increase hemp agricultural markets specifically by assisting the industry with ongoing efforts to submit hemp ingredients though the FAP (Food Additive Petition) process with the FDA-Center for Veterinary Medicine.
In collaboration with industry stakeholders, the Hemp Feed Coalition’s Steering Committee serves as a mechanism for collaboration, information sharing and relationship building with agencies, non profit organizations and universities to meet these goals and open new markets in animal feed for hemp.
