Sustainable Agricultural Technologies Limited (Roots) of Israel announces it has secured a non-binding Letter of Intent (LOI) with leading organic hemp grower and hemp food manufacturer Hempoint s.r.o. of the Czech Republic to advance a number of opportunities in the hemp plant-based meat sector.
Other hemp meat companies exist such as the Craft Meat Company in New Zealand, but this agreement would appear to indicate the first production of hemp meat in Europe.
Hemp seed is a lean source of plant-based protein, with a very low-fat content. It contains no cholesterol or saturated fat and carries all of the required amino acids needed to help repair muscle cells, regulate the nervous system and boost brain function.
Hempoint is part of the CzecHemp cluster, a non-governmental, non-profit organisation of private and public companies, and R&D focused groups actively developing the Czech hemp and medicinal cannabis industry. The company is considering the technical development and sourcing of protein from hemp for plant-based meat product initiatives.
