Hempacco had formed The Real Stuff, Inc., a Delaware corporation, in March 2021 and recently filed a certificate of amendment, changing the corporate name to Hempacco Paper Company, Inc. Hempacco owns 80% of the equity interests of Hempacco Paper Co., Inc., and Sonora Paper Co., Inc. owns 20%. Hempacco Paper Co., Inc., will develop and manufacture the smoking paper products in the USA and Mexico.

"The products and techniques we have spent the past 10 years developing will reach a wider audience," stated Daniel Kempton, Director of Sonora Paper Company, Inc. "and progress and development will happen much more rapidly through this partnership with Hempacco."

Up to this point, items like hemp tubes and wraps have been supplied almost entirely by overseas manual labor. Hempacco Paper Company is changing the game by introducing new mechanized processes to the manufacture of hemp tubes and wraps, right here in North America. The distance between factory and client has been reduced drastically, resulting in shorter transit times. Mechanization also enables much higher production speed and volume - more can be made faster. Other benefits of the mechanical processes include superior quality and consistency compared to hand-made counterparts, plus new options like custom shaped wraps or the addition of a printed logo.

"There is currently a scarcity of blunt wraps in the marketplace and this new joint venture will help us carve out that niche for Hempacco," explained Jorge Olson, Co-Founder and CMO of Hempacco. "We will manufacture hemp smoking products, rose petal smoking products, and other unique blunts and cones leaving our mark in the cannabis industry without actually touching the cannabis," concluded Mr. Olson.

"I am thrilled to see how we are growing our company through new joint ventures, this time joining forces with Daniel Kempton of Sonora Paper Co," stated Mr. Sandro Piancone, Co-Founder and CEO of Hempacco. "We are using their patents and patent-pending technology to dominate the smoking paper product field," concluded Mr. Piancone.
