Contract Processing


We have achieved Soil Association and ISO 9001 accreditation and can process and pack hemp seed on your behalf.

Cold Pressing of hemp seed oil


The seed is fed into a hopper and transferred onto the first floor where it passes through our seed cleaner. Once any debris is removed the clean seed is transferred by gravity into the hopper that feeds the oil press. The seed is pressed for oil very slowly to enable the temperature to remain low and to ensure that every drop of oil is removed from the seed. The oil collects in a small agitator tank and is automatically transferred into a large bulk tank which has an automated paddle system that ensures that any particles are suspended in the liquid. When the tank is full, the oil is pumped through two filter systems that ensures that all debris is collected. Only when the oil is completely clear it is pumped into a storage tank. We can then put your into any container for collection.

Milling hemp seed cake


A by-product of pressing hemp seed oil is the seed cake which is full of proteins. The seed cake is moved away from the press using an auger to the first floor. It is then fed into a hopper which feeds the mill. We then mill the cake into protein powder and flour.

Dehulling hemp seed


Making hemp hearts is a difficult process. First we grade the seed into large and small. The large seed is fed into our dehulling machine which fires the seed against a ceramic plate at high speed to break the shells. After this process is completed, it is transferred back into the seed cleaner to remove any unbroken seed and some of the husks. Then we move the seed back to the first floor and feed it into a hopper which feeds the sifter. The sifter is designed to use a combination of vibration and a cyclone to enable the heavier materials (the hearts) to move over a grid upwards to the outlet while the lighter material moves downwards where it enters a part of the machine where the cyclone removes the husk.

Packaging


Our packing machinery automatically fills pouches to the required amount. After filling, the pouches move through a heat sealer to seal them. Pouches are packed in boxes of 24. We can help with referring customers to printers, label designers and printed pouch suppliers. Date stamps and batch codes are applied along with barcodes to assist with stock management.

Bottling


Our bottling machine uses a vacuum pump so can fill rigid materials (glass or metal) to the required volume. We can fill plastic containers of any size from IBCs to 500ml bottles.

Labelling


We offer a bottle labelling service and we will put you in touch with label designers and printers. Our machine applies labels at high speed so please contact us early for printer info as the labels need to ​ be arranged on the roll in a certain manner. There are some legal requirements regarding labelling and we suggest that you contact your local authority Food Safety Team who will assist with this.
