River Valley Specialty Farms (RVSF) is excited to announce a strategic investment in an innovative technology, to produce pathogen-free, Ready-to-Eat (RTE) hemp seed.  The Gentle Processing™ method of pasteurization results in a certified, validated 5-log reduction in bacteria, making our hemp seed ideal for RTE food formulations.

“There’s never been a time where food safety is more important than now”, says RVSF’s co-owner, Kristen Gray.  “Families are concerned – and rightly so – with where their food comes from, and its quality.”

Instead of retreating from the challenges presented by the pandemic, RSVF determined that this would be a time to invest in new technology.  “As hemp hearts become a popular ingredient, quality & consistency is becoming equally as important as price, to manufacturers” added James Kuhl, co-owner & COO.  “We felt this was a time we could create a competitive advantage, in offering buyers a clean, pathogen-free option.”

Gentle Processing™ eliminates pathogens while preserving nutrients in food ingredients.   This new technology helps deliver ingredients that improve shelf life, taste better, and are as nutritious as nature intended.  For more information, visit their website at https://www.gentleprocessing.ca/.
