BELGRADE (Serbia), December 6 (SeeNews) - Canada's healthcare products manufacturer Eviana Health Corporation has said it plans to harvest 500 hectares of hemp in Serbia next year, up from 130 hectares harvested in 2017.

The company plans to install next week a Euro Prima herb processing and selection machine at its herb processing and storage facility, located in the village of Mladenovo, northern Serbia, to refine and package the hemp in 25 kg bags, the Canadian company said in a statement on Tuesday. 

"With 240 bales of hemp straw harvested and stored within the facility, along with the 42 metric tonnes of organic hemp flowers, trim and seeds harvested this year, I can say with certainty that the harvest has been a great success," the CEO of Eviana, Avram Adizes, said in the statement.

Furthermore, a new tractor and plough have been delivered to the facility in anticipation of ploughing and seeding for next year’s harvest, Eviana said.

The Canadian company delivers customised consumer healthcare products using natural hemp strains of cannabis sativa for cannabinoid-based topical creams, products and cosmeceutical and nutraceutical merchandise. 

Eviana holds an option to acquire a 100% equity interest in Ontario-based Eviana Inc., which holds certain assets in Serbia relating to the cultivation of industrial hemp plant oil for the pharmaceutical, nutraceutical and cosmeceutical industry. Pursuant to this option, the company has access to a significant grower and supplier of cannabinoids.
