We work with local industry and farmers to manufacture and research on innovative agro-products for pharmaceutical, construction, energy, paper, food, textile, lubricants, automobile, oil and cordage industries from the industrial hemp crop and now are working to use this model pan-India for poverty alleviation, empowerment and rural development.

The Bombay Hemp Company, also popularly known as BOHECO (Bo-hee-ko) is a privately held company headquartered in Mumbai, India. Formed in February 2012 to research on and promote the industrial hemp super crop in India, was formally registered on the 19th of January, 2013, with our operations ranging from research, cultivation, harvesting, processing, manufacturing, trading, wholesaling, retailing, innovating, advocating and promoting industrial hemp in India. We use the public-private partnership, contractual farming and processing, subsidiaries and collaborative research model to build the industrial hemp ecosystem in India.

We go beyond the realm of a traditional agriculture manufacturing company because of our social engagement with rural communities and active work on creating an entire industry and ecosystem in the country. BOHECO is an ethically and legally driven company, that does not promote the misuse of any psychotropic substance but instead works actively with government to develop, promote and use no/low THC Cannabis sativa sativa plant varieties.

Through BOHECO’s mission of ‘Educate. Cultivate.
