Webinar: From Farmer to Pharma – a Teaser of Things to Come

Thursday 14th May 2020 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm


Webinar: From Farmer to Pharma – a Teaser of Things to Come

 Registration is closed for this event

Hemp and cannabis are being hailed as the new wonder crops, and we have big plans for an event to help de-bunk the myths and highlight the opportunities to the industry.


Alas, we’ll have to wait until we can get together properly and discuss it, but for now to whet your appetites, join us for a FREE webinar with our members Hanway Associates to learn more.


Helping farmers and the wider agri-tech ecosystem navigate the production, processing and market opportunities in this landscape is the focus of this upcoming webinar, ‘From Farmer to Pharma – a Teaser of Things to Come’, which will include speakers from strategic consultancy organisation, Hanway Associates, which has recently announced Crop17 – a new initiative to support the development of medical cannabis facilities, in association with Savills.


"The Hanway team is very excited to connect with the members of Agri-TechE for this “From Farmer to Pharma” webinar. Since the legalisation of medical cannabis in 2018, excitement has grown for this nascent sector. Now is the perfect time to take a look at how UK farmers can take advantage and make the most out of this new opportunity that growing hemp and cannabis offer."

- George McBride, CEO of Hanway Associates
