Hemp Feed Coalition

Friends of Hemp is supportive of growing opportunities for the hemp industry, that’s why we have collaborated with the Hemp Feed Coalition.

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.
