About: In February 2024, the NSW Government established a Hemp Industry Taskforce, made up of ten representatives from growers and industry groups, to support producers and growers in this expanding industry. This panel will discuss how the Taskforce will best support the development of the hemp industry, including the expansion of rural jobs, and the short and long-term goals of the industry including;

  • The role of hemp in assisting NSW to reach a net zero, circular economy
  • Barriers to production including supply and value chains
  • Opportunities for expansion of the hemp industry through legislation and industrial regulation
