Coles Now Selling Hemp Products Provided by MCL
Sydney, April 19, 2018 AEST (ABN Newswire) - The Board of Queensland Bauxite Limited (ASX:QBL) is pleased to advise that Red Tractor have now supplied hundreds of Coles stores around Australia with various products and oil blends that have hemp ingredients included exclusively supplied by QBL's subsidiary Medical cannabis Limited (MCL) and its hemp seed food subsidiary VitaHemp Pty Ltd (Vitahemp).

Exposing Hemp Foods to a mass consumer market who may know little about Hemp, and now see Hemp derived products on a Coles shelf, inspires confidence and provides a win for a bourgeoning Hemp Foods industry, that VitaHemp is now leading. This is a huge step towards assuring and educating the consumer on the safety and health benefits of hemp seed foods, and breaking down the misconceptions and social stigma around the consuming of hemp for its nutritional and health benefits.

Whether it be filling VitaHemp pouches or supplying the core ingredients for other brands, the core quality must remain the same, the very best. VitaHemp is excited, particularly so early in its journey, to report that products created utilising its premium oils and flours are now sitting on Coles shelves.

It all begins with the seed and the quality of the production. VitaHemp is one of the very few Australian companies that have access to hemp seed on a large commercial scale, and is able to commercially bulk produce its oils and flour at a high quality. MCL's processing partner Waltanna Farms had the orders, and with their blending and bottling expertise together we made it happen to ensure that there is now premium hemp ingredients and products on Coles shelves for the Australian consumer of this newly legally recognised superfood.

Andrew Kavasilas, Technical Director of MCL, remarked "The stocking of hemp products in a major supermarket chain such as Coles, is a fulfilment of our vision that we have worked for over the past two decades in pushing towards the legalisation of hemp foods in Australia, so that the average Australian consumer is now exposed to and can now easily benefit from the great health benefits that this superfood provides."
