Current status of FINOLA in the EU
In 1999, FINOLA was listed in the European Commission's Common Catalogue of Varieties of Agricultural Plant Species. FINOLA was eventually eligible for a crop subsidy in the European Union by 2003, but this status was removed after 2006, yet FINOLA remained listed in the EC's Common Catalogue. After some years of discussion, the European Commission finally returned the eligibility to FINOLA on 23 February 2011, but only for Finnish farmers. Our discussions continued. In the Spring of 2013, the EC finally decided to return the full eligibility to FINOLA for farmers in all Member States of the European Union. This means that the Common Agriculture Policy (CAP) subsidy will again be paid to all EU FINOLA farmers. The final decision was published on 29 April of 2013 as Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) No 393/2013. This Regulation is now in force and directly applicable in all EU Member States. Please contact your Ministry of Agriculture for more information, and be sure to help them take field samples of FINOLA at the correct time in your country (between 55 to 75 days after sowing, and never after 75 days).

LET'S CHANGE THE WORLD WITH HEALTHY FOODS!
FINOLA is a weapon of mass production in the war on hunger, poverty and perhaps even ignorance!
The FINOLA oilseed hemp variety is an excellent source of sustainable food and fiber. The exceptional fatty acid profile in Finola hempseed oil offers a rich source of the essential fatty acids (EFAs); omega-3 ALA and omega-6 LA, in addition to significant amounts of GLA and SDA. We can't make the EFAs ourselves, so we have to get them from the daily diet. The EFAs are needed to produce many important things in our bodies, including optimal nerve functions throughout the brain and central nervous system. Finola hempseed oil is a safe and nutritious way to consume our dietary EFAs, to better our somatic health already at the neuronal level.
