Hemp on the menu as new laws come into effect
Bare Naked Bowls in Sydney and Shoku Iku in Melbourne have already put hemp on the menu and have seen an increase in customer demand for more hemp dishes.
Both cafes use products from Lariese Purely Hemp, one of Australia’s largest and longest running suppliers of hemp in Australia and across the world.
Josh Porteous from Bare Naked Bowls, with cafes in Manly and Bronte, said his customers frequently requested hemp products before became hemp consumption became legal on November 12.
“We’re delighted that it is now legal to use hemp in our dishes” he said. “We have seen customers switching to dishes including hemp, in fact two of our most popular dishes both include hemp. We now serve Lariese Hemp products in many of our Bare Naked Bowls and in dishes on our new summer menu and we’re sure this will increase.”
Lariese Purely Hemp is anticipating 500 per cent growth in sales this financial year, following the new legislation.
“Now we can legally sell our Hemp products to cafes, restaurants and retail outlets in Australia, we are confident that Hemp will soon become the staple ingredient for consumers wanting to enjoy a healthy and nutritious diet,” said Lariese Purely Hemp managing director Lloyd Williams.
