Episode details

In this episode, I hosted Shailesh Ganeriwala & Animesh Thakur - cofounders of OGHemp, a company which is making paper & packaging materials from Hemp.

We dived into their respective journeys, how they got in the Hemp space & why they specifically targeted the paper industry. Shailesh explained the benefits of making paper from Hemp & why it is a no brainer to do so!

Animesh covered the process they follow to make paper from Hemp & also spoke about the challenges in the initial days in manufacturing Hemp paper. We discussed OGHemp's target market, distribution channels & what sets them apart from other players in the market.

I was also curious about why Hemp has not exploded [yet] in India & Animesh had a very interesting answer to it. We spoke about the company's long term vision & what exactly does 'OG' stand for in OGHemp!
