Thought Leaders in Food & Ag: The Mainstreaming of Hemp (and Hemp CBD) with Manitoba Harvest

  • Herbert M. Hanson Jr. Hall 1925 South 4th Street Minneapolis, MN 55455 (map)

There is no hotter product right now than Hemp. While there are many applications, we are going to start witth a conversation on consumer products. With increased interest in potential health and wellness benefits, the passing of the 2014 and 2018 Farm Bills, and increased capital investment, it seems like the sky is the limit. But there are also lot of questions from the product itself to consumer perceptions and the regulatory environment.

In our next event, we welcome the team from Manitoba Harvest, a global leader for over 20 years in hemp-based products. They will share insights on the current and future hemp and hemp CBD landscape, building their brand, educating the consumer, sustainability and more.

Speakers include: 
Anne Thompson - VP of Marketing
Brent Budke - Director of Insights 
and more to be announced.

AURI will also share an update on their upcoming Hemp Opportunity Report and seek feedback for future sessions.

Agenda:
5:30-6:00pm: Networking and registration
6:00-6:50pm: Moderated Q&A and discussion
6:50-7:30pm: Additional networking
