Surrey, B.C. – Global Hemp Group Inc. (GHG) has joined with several South African enterprises to create Global Hemp Group Africa (GHGA). The new company will develop profitable, sustainable hemp businesses in South Africa and throughout the continent.
GHG will partner with a consortium of companies in South Africa, including House of Hemp, the only private company with permits to grow hemp in South Africa; Omega Scientific Research; KK Trust; and House of Mandela Agricultural Holdings, founded by Dr. Phumla Makaziwe Mandela.
