Australian hemp company Ecofibre (ASX:EOF) has officially opened its new facility in Georgetown, Kentucky, USA.

According to local station WKYT, the facility is part of the Kentucky Department of Agriculture’s hemp pilot program and Ag Commissioner Ryan Quarles – a big supporter of the sector – attended the opening.

Events such as this pose a risk during these troubled times, so face masks were among the protections provided; manufactured by Ecofibre subsidiary Hemp Black. We mentioned last month the masks have been quite popular, with 67,000 Hemp Black facemasks sold in May and generating revenue of AUD $1.2 million for the company.
