Six products will vie for “Hemp Product of the Year” honors during this year’s European Industrial Hemp Association’s (EIHA) 16th Annual Conference June 4-5 in Cologne. The competition, in its second year, aims to promote innovative applications and markets for industrial hemp-based products. The award is sponsored by Dutch hemp firm HempFlax.

A jury of representatives from the EIHA advisory board and sponsors of the annual conference selected the nominees from among 30 entries. They will give short presentations on Day 1 of the conference. Conference delegates will then vote the winners, who will be announced during a ceremony that same evening.

The nominated companies also will have their innovations on display in a shared exhibition space provided by nova-Institute, the conference organizer, during the run of the two-day event. The exhibition, which will host 27 hemp companies, is fully booked.

The nominees and their entries are:

  • Academy of Design and Crafts Münster (Germany): Light Sculptures Monas made of hemp cellulose.
