Veteran German hemp farmer and product developer Rafael Dulon, CEO at Berlin-based HANF FARM will talk on “Hemp as Superfood and Medicine” during the Hemp2020 Investment Summit Oct. 20-21 in Poland.

Hemp2020 business summit on Oct. 20-21, 2017 in Nakło, Poland.

Dulon will give an update on developments in two of hemp’s hottest sectors and talk about optimal strategies for cultivation to maximize yield, quality and value of raw materials. He’ll also give an overview of organic hemp farming and a review of the steadily growing ‘eco’ and health-conscious European hemp food market.

Farming & food expert

Dulon has been involved in nearly all aspects of the hemp value chain since 1997. Trained in organic agriculture and marketing of high-quality hemp foods, he began with the cultivation of cannabis seeds in Saxony-Anhalt and Brandenburg, Germany as early as 1997, processing hemp seed into top-shelf edible oils. He is also the developer of the Multi-Combine HC 3400 hemp harvester, a major technological step forward that can help hemp farmers realize the full promise of the plant from medium and large-scale farming.

Hemp industry leaders from the USA and Europe will address Hemp2020, to be held at HempToday Center in Poland. HempToday and Czech-based Hempoint are co-organizers of the second annual Summit. Thirty hemp professionals from 11 countries attended last year’s inaugural Hemp2020 event.
