The Missouri Hemp Association LLC is excited to announce the addition of our newest Associate, Peerless Canna Processing, LLC. Peerless is building industrial scale processing facilities that can process large volumes of hemp up to 15,000 pounds per day. These facilities will be regionally located and dedicated to the production of high-quality food and pharmaceutical grade hemp derived concentrates (crude and distillates) for wholesale B2B distribution using cGMP processes and facilities. Peerless will also provide storage, toll processing, and hemp and oil brokering services. The first facility will be in St. Louis, MO with the storage facility opening by October 1, 2020 and the processing facility opening by January 2021.
Peerless will be one of the first of a new generation of processors, not an outgrowth of the recreational cannabis business but instead designed, built, and operated by engineers and professionals with over a century of experience in food and pharmaceutical manufacturing. Using best-of-breed industrial processing technology, and designed from the start for FDA-compliant operations, Peerless will incorporate fully automated and precisely controlled processing systems that will support the product consistency and standardization that this industry is lacking and that the FDA, consumers, and food and pharmaceutical companies will demand.
“We’re thrilled to have Peerless on board as an Associate,” said Bill Cook, MHA Executive Director. “This industry is in need of large-scale processing, and Peerless will be a great company to fill that role. We look forward to working with them and our members to continue furthering the hemp industry in this nation.”
Peerless is currently seeking Missouri hemp farmers who are interested in using their toll processing services. If you are interested in working with Peerless, you can contact them anytime via email at email@example.com by phone at (314) 625-2936. Growers can also contact the MHA office anytime if they have questions.
