Bombay Hemp Company, also popularly known as BOHECO (Bo-hee-ko) is a privately held, social enterprise headquartered in Mumbai, India.
BOHECO was founded to research on and promote industrial hemp, the super crop of our era in India. BOHECO was formally registered under The Companies Act (1956) on the 19th of January, 2013, with our operations ranging from research, cultivation, harvesting, processing, manufacturing, trading, wholesaling, retailing, innovating, advocating, creating a market for and promoting Indian industrial hemp both across the nation and around the world. We use public-private partnership, contractual farming and processing, subsidiaries and collaborative research models, all with an aim to build an industrial hemp ecosystem or industry here.
We go beyond the realm of a traditional, agriculture centered manufacturing company, owed to our direct social engagement with rural communities, besides our on-going work towards creating this industry and the consequent employment generation, along with the revival of Indian agriculture.
BOHECO is an ethically, scientifically and legally driven company, that does not promote the misuse of any psychotropic substance, but instead works proactively, with the government to develop, promote and use no/low THC Cannabis sativa plant varieties.
In 2017, we were awarded Second Runner-Up position at the Tata Social Enterprise Challenge, a joint initiative by the TATA group and the Indian Institute of Management (IIM) as well as, The Social Innovation Leadership Award, at the Social Innovation Conference Awards, on World CSR Day.
