A hemp production plant is expanding its Michigan City location.
Viobin is investing $6.1-million into its current operations on U.S. Hwy 12 in order to expand its hemp drying, feed production and processing. The expansion will also include purchasing new equipment, including a hemp dryer, screen, pelletizer and hammermill.
The work is expected to add 15 jobs. The Michigan City Common Council approved a five-year tax abatement on the expansion back on November 4.
Viobin processes industrial hemp into cannabidiol, or CBD, for use in lotions, isolates and oils. For more information, visit www.viobin.com.
