We are very proud to announce that we have won two awards at the recent Nourish Awards®. Our brand won a special award: The Best Ethical Brand 2022 and our Cold-pressed Hemp Seed Oil achieved a silver in the cupboard essentials category.
The ethical award is for brands that have sustainability at the heart of their businesses. At the British Hemp Co, we consider sustainability at all levels:
- Raw materials - British grown hemp supporting British farmers
- Chemicals - Hemp doesn't require herbicides or pesticides allowing our hedgerows & pollinators to thrive
- Zero waste factory - All of the hemp seed is used, any waste goes for animal feed
- Packaging - Recyclable
- Carbon - Hemp absorbs massive amounts of carbon helping the UK get to Net Zero by 2050
Feedback from the judges on our oil was as follows: "Absolutely delicious, smooth and lovely", "excellent, not bitter very smooth oil - surprised me, also great with salad" & "liked the hemp oil and pleased to see a British grown and produced product."
