Quality

Selection 

To ensure the highest quality we monitor the control procedures throughout the supply chain, conducting full supplier audits and regularly reviewing quality control parameters to mitigate for cross contamination from field to factory. We believe that the most valuable products are produced only from the best quality raw materials. 

This starts with the selection of EU approved high quality hemp seeds. All of our products are produced only from the certified seed varieties. 

 

Validation 

Our supply chain department communicate with hemp seed growers and processors, so that we can trace the origin and quality of the hemp we use. We always validate the cultivation of our hemp whether organic or non-organic source and review its route before reaching our manufacturing facility in Devon, UK. We only use minimum 99.5% purity whole hemp seed. On arrival both organic and non-organic hemp seeds are subject to stringent storage and separation in compliance with our organic certification which we have held since 2018. 

Labelling raw materials with batch numbers allows us to trace the history of a product such as the date of sowing and threshing, the seed grade, the country of origin and even the farm in which it was grown. 

 

Analysis 

We test the raw materials and products in external laboratories, studying the microbiological and nutritional composition as well as conducting batch and interval based heavy metal analysis of the seeds and ingredients following fractionation. 

Sustainability

For us here at Good Hemp, sustainability isn’t part of a corporate social responsibility document, it’s part of our DNA. When you work with hemp, the crop’s planet saving credentials are at the fore of everything you do (read more on them here), and the people within our team are equally as passionate about the environment staying healthy for generations to come. 

OUR AMBITION IS FOR ALL FOOD AND DRINK TO BE SUSTAINABLE

Currently over a quarter of all greenhouse emissions come from food. Many of our customers share our vision on sustainability hence, by working together, perhaps we can enhance our planet for future generations.

Our operational team in Devon are continually reviewing our product processes and practices. This has allowed us to develop a more environmentally sustainable manufacturing site with improved efficiency in our working practices as well as being able to produce the highest quality products. In addition we are continually striving to be at the cutting edge, offering unique, new and exciting hemp seed ingredients not available anywhere else.

In the future we see ourselves entering the B Corp movement, lowering our carbon footprint still further and supplying more exciting products to engage the increasing vegan, flexitarian and nutritionally astute modern customer to help them to meet their consumer demands.

The Road Ahead

To ensure we keep the planet centric to our day to day hemp seed lives, we have 5 simple targets for Good Hemp Ingredients.

For The People

Trustworthy and accredited quality hemp seed ingredient products that benefit our customers business and their consumers' health.

Process

We clean the whole hemp seed then we remove the outer shell of the hemp seed through a mechanical process. The shell is then used to make dietary fibre. 

The de hulled seed (heart) then goes through an aqueous extraction process to separate the white protein concentrate and isolate, hemp cream, hemp fibre and water (which contains water soluble proteins and fats and is recycled). 

The whole seed passes through the oil press to produce our two different types of oils and the remaining product is then milled to produce 50% protein and more fibre. 

We have been working with Good Hemp for several years now and are passionate about the benefits of hemp both nutritionally and environmentally. The unique isolates are critical to the success of our bars and the service which the team at Good Hemp provide is both customer focussed and quality.
