A joint venture has been formed between flavor and fragrance house, Robertet, and Klersun, a producer of high-quality industrial hemp products, to formulate products with Broad Spectrum Hemp Extracts [BSHE]. The collaboration aligns with Robertet’s 170-year history of sourcing and vertically integrating key, natural botanicals for the flavor and fragrance market.

Both companies will work to develop products for brands that want to add BSHE to their flavored or fragranced products, an ingredient derived from industrial hemp and contains cannabidiol [CBD] using Klersun’s agricultural network and extraction technology in Oregon. Klersun’s Hemp Extract is produced in accordance with the 2018 U.S. Farm Bill and is available in two qualities, NDT (Non-Detectable THC) and <0.3% THC. Both are produced through proprietary Supercritical CO2 extraction methods. The NDT contains a CBD concentration of ≥ 80% and a THC concentration that is non-detectable using standard industry analysis at ppm levels.

Robertet is closely monitoring the regulatory environment in the EU and stands ready to expand into those markets once local regulations are clear.
