Food Preserving Hemp-Fresco™ Expands Around the Globe: CGT Signs Distribution Agreement in Europe
CALGARY, Canada, August 25, 2021- Today, Canadian Greenfield Technologies Corp. (CGT), is delighted to announce the signing of a distribution agreement for Hemp-Fresco™ in Southwestern Europe by PSCD, Lda- a conglomerate group specializing in natural, innovative products. The first order of Hemp-Fresco™ has already been shipped.
Recently, CGT released a video “HEMP SAVES FOOD!”, highlighting the completely new and high-impact use of hemp for food preservation. The problem of food spoilage is enormous. Up to 40% of food is spoiled or wasted, while half the planet goes to bed hungry! Food storage and protection from spoilage is a multi-billion dollar industry.
Numerous scientific studies have long established that hemp, due to its natural antibacterial properties, can be used to store and significantly prolong the shelf life of food. Until recently, these findings were only theory, due to the lack of technology capable of manufacturing hemp products suitable for food storage and protection. CGT has successfully commercialized such a product- Hemp-Fresco™ Food Preservation Pads, manufactured using our patented HempTrain™ technology, the first of it’s kind to the market. Long-proven to slow the spoilage of fruits & vegetables, Hemp-Fresco™ pads absorb liquids and ripening gases and naturally prevents bacteria growth – in turn preventing premature spoiling, helping food stay fresh longer.
