The Holmes Family and Hempco® are long-time pioneers and innovators in hemp research, products advocacy and education. Charles spent years learning from experts in food and nutrition about natural solutions to his personal health challenges and got involved in the hemp industry looking for the ultimate vegan protein source for humans – he found it… and much more… in the mighty hemp seed. Working with his father Ken and sisters Angela and Symentha, they developed specialized hemp seed processing equipment and brought to market a series of innovative firsts: hemp protein powder and protein powder concentrates, and hemp non-dairy beverage, ice cream and yogurt products. Hempco® has been a bulk hemp seed processor and supplier for over a decade, and in light of the hemp industry impending growth and international recognition, what once was a small family business, realized the impending hemp industry growth, Hempco® required large and fast funding and is now public trading, has raised approximately $4m and has more than $6m/yr in sales.

Hempco® is creating a world class level supply infrastructure for $100m/yr in sales. In order to increase sales margins, Hempco® developed and released PLANETHEMP – a consumer packaged goods (CPG) retail line and a growing range of hemp based foods, snacks and oil. Hempco® has a vertically integrated “Seed to Shelf” model that allows close monitoring of the hemp seeds at every stage to ensure the healthiest and highest quality finished product. Hempco® vision and mission is to see that every family is consuming healthy hemp foods… everyday.

Change starts small with a seeded thought in our mind.

Just like a thought can build into a grand, a hemp seed may appear tiny, but it has greatness within it, and the ability, to make a huge difference in our world.

Humble Hemp is one of the strongest, fastest growing and productive crops creating the longest most durable natural fiber for thousands of uses and the most concentrated and complete source of essential nutrients and medicinal phytosterols for human health and well being. It is kind and gentle on the earth giving us cleaner air, energy and more fertile soil from its incomparable biomass.

Its fuel for innovation. Use it, eat it, where it… give it the attention and respect it deserves, in all aspects of our lives.

This seed… then becomes a better way of life – PLANETHEMP.
