Plant-based, traceable and responsibly sourced

We are leaders, pioneering innovation in hemp production. Our New Zealand grown hemp seeds are transported from the field to be crushed at our purpose-built facilities, producing excellent quality oil. This allows for complete traceability from the planted seed, right through to the processing of bulk hemp protein powder to the finished product in a pouch.

Our quest for quality and a competitive edge is ongoing to ensure that our products meet the highest international standards. With quality assurance programmes that maintain control at every point along the production process, we deliver a superior bottle of hemp.

Our plant-based production focus ensures we give back to the environment. Carefully planning crop rotations to improve soil health and biodiversity. Our hemp seed is produced in a responsible and environmentally way.

Why is NZ hemp seed protein powder the best option?

Midlands is one of the founding hemp production companies and hemp protein manufacturers in New Zealand. With no additives or preservatives, our raw hemp protein is as pristine as the environment we grow it in. Our powerful sunlight and clean air mean our New Zealand grown hemp works hard to develop a barrier from the sun, meaning they build up higher levels of antioxidants and polyphenolic compounds.

Where does hemp protein come from?

Hemp protein is made from the seeds of the Cannabis sativa plant. These hemp seeds are harvested at maturity and then transported to our oil extraction facility. The whole hemp seed is cold pressed, crushed to extract the oil. The leftover cake is then finely milled into a protein.  Nothing more, nothing less.

Is hemp protein powder better than whey?

That depends on why you want to consume more protein. Some of the key differences are the source, the amount of processing and the absorption of protein.

Hemp protein is minimally processed, and hemp protein is plant-based. Why on the other hand is animal-based, derived from dairy products, and is highly processed.

Although whey typically has more protein, protein is more easily absorbed from foods or minimally process protein. There are a few wholefood proteins, which avoid using high temperatures and artificial ingredients or extraction methods, including our cold pressed, raw hemp protein.
