New Zealand is great for growing bananas (and hemp)
Mills is hoping to change the New Zealand banana situation by co-ordinating the introduction of a commercial banana growing industry in the East Coast and Wairoa areas through the company Tai Pukenga.
According to the NZ Herald, Tai Pukenga not only deals with bananas. The company is also into its third season of growing hemp in the region and supplies seeds to the local craft brewery. This had led to a very successful product for the Sunshine Brewery in the form of hemp beer.
Trevor Mills was interviewed by The Country, speaking about the many uses for and products made from hemp.
