Custom packaging and branding solutions provider Hippo Premium Packaging announced it used a new hemp-based, sustainable packaging solution for its client, Hemp Valley Farms. Hemp Valley Farms is a CBD manufacturer that uses all-natural, regenerative farming techniques.
“Hemp Valley Farms came to us to produce their packaging, and after learning about their company, we thought that using a sustainable hemp-based paper was the perfect solution,” said Kary Radestock, founder and CEO of Hippo Premium Packaging.
Radestock reached out to Mohawk Paper — North America’s oldest family-owned and -operated fine paper mill — to see how its new Renewal Hemp paper would hold up to the demands of CBD packaging. Every sheet of Mohawk Renewal Hemp is made with 30% hemp fiber — a rapidly renewable fiber source that contributes to a sustainable supply chain.
“Using hemp-based papers is still rather new,” Radestock said. “We wanted to collaborate with the manufacturer to make sure everything was dialed-in and optimized so that the final product would be fantastic.”
The results demonstrated that now quality doesn’t have to be sacrificed for sustainability — making the paper a great choice for premium packaging solutions.
Hippo produced packaging for three different blends of Hemp Valley Farms’ CBD tinctures and is now working on the packaging for HVF’s CBD-based cosmetics, balms, muscle rubs and pet products.
Todd Salemi, founder and CEO of Hemp Valley Farms, said it has been a great experience working with Hippo.
“Not only did they bring a hemp-based solution to the table, but equally important, the entire Hippo team was super nice and easy to work with.”
