CGT Pursues High-Value Markets for North American Hemp Industry
CALGARY, Canada, July 22, 2020- Canadian Greenfield Technologies Corp. (CGT) is delighted to announce the acceptance of HempAlta™Pets Hemp Cat Litter by major retailers, including Petland Canada, Sobeys-owned banners, Tail Blazers and Amazon as well as many independent specialty retailers across Canada and the United States. The wide acceptance this product marks another milestone for commercializing high value, HempTrain™ manufactured products in North America.
CGT is one of few companies in the global hemp industry, that has commercialized high-value whole-plant hemp products for existing, multi-billion dollar markets, including pet care, garden care, food preservation, hemp-infused products and construction. The cat litter market alone in Canada and the United States is worth an estimated $5 billion, servicing approximately 100 million cats and 38% of households. Last month, CGT spotlighted the success of hemp in high-value, global markets in the educational video, “Hurd: Establishing High-Value, Global Markets.”
As many have now discovered, there is a processing gap between cultivation and high-value markets for hemp. With advanced technological infrastructure, high-value products can be made from all separable portions of the hemp plant, including hurd, bast fiber and green microfiber. As was announced earlier, to facilitate the growth of the North American hemp industry, in addition to supplying HempTrain™ installations, CGT now offers HempTrain™ toll processing services to enable more market participants to establish high-value global markets.
