"Sales have been slightly down for February and March as compared to last year at this time. Korean market is flooded with cheaper Chinese and eastern EU hemp products and competition is furious. The Hempco® $9m contract with its Korean Distributor is just over a third completed and the team is working diligently to keep increasing bulk sales in to Korea and eastern Asia. Meantime Hempco®  has hired sales experts to develop new markets in North America, Asia and Europe." Says CEO, Charles Holmes. "PLANETHEMP® retail sales are picking up and we are expecting great results with the launch of our new highest quality, low THC - "CBD and Organic Hemp Seed Oil" supplement product in the UK."
