Andrew Davidson

Andrew is a Director and Shareholder of the Midlands group of companies and Chairman of Pure Oil New Zealand, a partner company of Midlands. Andrew has led Midlands involvement in the hemp seed supply chain in both New Zealand and Australia, and this involvement dates back to the companies first hemp seed harvest in 2002.
During this time, Midlands has researched, developed and implemented vertical integration for locally grown hemp crops.  This has also included actively lobbying with government to develop legislation for hemp production in New Zealand, and more recently legislation for the sale of hemp foods in New Zealand and Australia.
The development of this New Zealand hemp seed industry by Midlands has been secured alongside the development of a wider range of specialty oilseeds and superfoods for health for domestic and export markets.  This means that Andrew brings a wealth of experience on crop production, processing technology, product development, and the marketing and sales of nutritional ingredients, that can now be applied to the local production and global distribution of New Zealand hemp products.
