EU-Italian funded project aims to develop hemp supply chains in Sicily

Sicilian officials say they will launch a broad-based program aimed at developing local supply chains for industrial hemp.

The initiative, “Canapa New Tech” (“New Tech Hemp”), is under the Sicily Rural Development Program (PSR), which invests in agriculture, forestry and environmental protection. PSR, which is jointly funded by the European Union and the Sicilian Region, has not indicated the level of investment.
