VANCOUVER, May 6, 2019 /CNW/ - Wahupta Ventures Inc. is pleased to announce that it has added Russ Crawford to their executive team. Appointed as Wahupta's Senior Farming Strategist Crawford will merge his years of hemp knowledge and experience with a global portfolio in the industry to further expand Wahupta's agricultural farming production and processing.
Crawford's impressive resume includes his continued leadership of the Canadian Hemp Trade Alliance (CHTA) as President since 2013. The CHTA is a national organization that promotes Canadian hemp and hemp products globally, and now Russ brings that experience with world-wide hemp farmers, processors, manufacturers, researchers, entrepreneurs and marketers to Wahupta.
"I'm grateful to be joining Wahupta," says Crawford. "I am fortunate to have an in-depth, high-arching perspective on the growing hemp market, and over the last year working with Wahupta it became clear to me that they have a unique understanding of everything hemp. More specifically, they have the vision, infrastructure and brain-trust to maximize on one of the greatest agricultural opportunities – hemp. I've seen the hemp industry evolve over decades, and feel that I want to be a part of Wahupta's path to success."
"We are excited to welcome Russ Crawford to the team," adds Wahupta's CEO Warren Cudney. "Due to his knowledge and experience Russ obviously had multiple opportunities at his disposal, and we are humbled that he has chosen to lend his expertise and decades of leadership in the hemp industry to the Wahupta team. We look forward to continued collaboration with Russ."
Additionally, drawing on his experience in commodity trading, transportation, and major agricultural operations, Crawford's new role in Wahupta will include expanding and nurturing Wahupta's growing network of farmers. Specifically, Crawford will oversee the newly formed Wahupta Farming Collective "WFC" which will focus on providing support to farmers and farming partners. Once the WFC is fully developed, it will provide exclusive access to support for hemp farm licensing, access to exclusive online training and courses on hemp farming and processing, while further securing maximum monetary return to farmers for raw hemp biomass.
"We have always recognized the critical importance that our farming partners bring to our model, and so we are always looking at opportunities that can further support and grow this aspect of our business," states Cudney. "The WFC really puts the farmer first and gives them a wealth of tools and resources to ensure they continue to succeed. With Crawford at the helm of the WFC, it's a very exciting time for Wahupta and hemp famers alike."
