  • Conversion of Hempro International GmbH & Co. KG into Hempro International GmbH
  • Strategic structuring of the group of companies for the planned formation of a holding company
  • Hemp group of companies with highest quality standards and steady upward trend

The hemp company Hempro International as well as the sister companies of the HempHolding group of companies (in planning) are strategically aligning themselves even more internationally with immediate effect. With this step, the Düsseldorf pioneers and experts for raw materials as well as products made from industrial hemp are pushing ahead with their expansion. For this reason, Hempro International GmbH & Co. KG has now been transformed into Hempro International GmbH.

“With the corporate form GmbH, we can now call up consolidated balance sheets of our group of companies at any time and depict the holding company with the highest turnover in the European hemp market. Our figures regarding hemp raw materials and hemp products, especially in organic quality, speak for us and our industrial hemp. It is time to align our business even more consistently worldwide beyond Europe,” explains Managing Director Daniel Kruse.

“We will be very well prepared. The latest signals from the EU Commission in Brussels on industrial hemp, hemp food and CBD are absolutely promising. The hemp market will grow steadily in the coming years. Our goal is to be able to successfully counter the competition from Asia and North America on the global market with European quality and made in Germany,” says Kruse about the future prospects.

In 2019, the hemp group of companies around Hempro Int. generated sales of 17 million euros and employed 53 employees*. Less the Corona pandemic than more the official arbitrariness led to the fact that in 2020 only the previous year’s turnover was achieved. For 2021, managing director Kruse expects, based on inquiries and order situation, a further strong increase in the growth curve, which has risen steadily since 2001.

Hempro International was founded in 2001 by Kruse as a sole proprietorship and entered into the commercial register as a registered merchant (e. K.) in 2002. Since the end of 2008 the healthily grown company operated under the name Hempro International GmbH & Co. KG.
In 2021, Hempro International GmbH is thus now celebrating 20 years of production and distribution of raw materials and products from hemp – one of the oldest and most sustainable crops in the world.

“As the universal successor, Hempro International GmbH takes over all rights and obligations of Hempro International GmbH & Co. KG – nothing changes for our customers except for the company name,” says Managing Director Rebecca Kruse. “And we also remain true to the corporate strategy of being one of the best hemp producers worldwide with our quality made in Germany!”
