Our Approach

Founder Steve Glover created UK Hemp to bring the benefits of hemp to UK farmers, food manufacturers and consumers.

In 2017 Steve achieved his first industrial hemp license and since then has gone on to achieve over 40 licenses for other farmers. In 2019 he started the Bristol Hemp Co which specialised in importing finished hemp seed products from the EU and became the licensed distributor for the Polish Seed Co.

After a successful first year of importing cultivation seed, he looked for partners to start UK Hemp which would not only import the cultivation seed but would buy seed back from farmers in the UK for processing into the 5 basic products – hemp seed oil, hulled hemp seed, protein powder (25% and 50%) and whole seed.

In 2022 UK Hemp took over the importation and distribution of C1 seed for cultivation and became the exclusive distributor for Finola. In 2023 UK Hemp imported over 8 tonnes of cultivation seed , making us the biggest C1 hemp seed importer in the UK.

In 2024 UK Hemp added 6 new varieties to the catalogue including the newly launched Finola2 variety.

The Triple Bottom Line

UK Hemp Limited triple bottom line logo

We operate a “triple bottom line” where the people, the environment and profit are equally important. At UK Hemp we believe in paying the farmers as much as we possibly can – we didn’t want to be one of those “middle men” type of companies that drive down the prices for our suppliers and drive up the costs to our customers.

We see hemp powering a new generation of tasty, plant-based foods that are good for us and our planet; enabling food companies to create better foods and as a result unlock the value of the hemp seed for us, our growers and the environment.

As Brexit begins to bite, it is extremely important that we support UK farmers and processors in the search to develop UK grown plant proteins and fibres, not only for reasons of financial sustainability but also from a carbon footprint perspective.

As part of our ISO9001 accreditation we test for pesticide residue, heavy metal contamination, mycotoxins and microbiology to ensue that only top quality seed is processed. Each batch can be traced back to individual UK farms

Compelling British Ingredients

People want to eat healthier and with less impact on our planet — but they don’t want to compromise on quality. UK Hemp ingredients bridge that gap. So, instead of healthier products that customers tolerate, brands can create products their customers rave about.

UK Hemp is the largest importer and distributor of C1 cultivation Hemp Seed in the UK. This activity contributes massively to food security, employment, financial stability, the reduction in CO2 and to building resilience within the farming community..
