Industrial hemp, not to be confused with marijuana, is a naturally-occurring and increasingly-popular product that is now being used to manufacture everything from biodegradable plastic to construction materials. During the Meetup, Gabe Youtsey will speak about the hemp program at University of California, Division of Agriculture and Natural Resources and research surrounding the uses of hemp. Richard De Andrade of Solare Trace Inc., a traceability software company, will share the newest cutting-edge platforms and structured supply chain services for hemp production and distribution.
