With a proven supply chain source, Burcon believes it is strategically positioned not only to tap into a multi-billion-dollar addressable market but also to launch additional protein products, advancing its Burcon 2.0 business plan toward profitability.

There is strong customer demand for high-quality hempseed protein with exceptional taste, color and functionality,” said Marc van Burck, HPS’s chief executive officer.  “We believe that the 95% hempseed protein isolate is a game changer that can tap into a burgeoning hemp foods market.  We look forward to providing our customers with this truly innovative product.”
