As an expanded collaboration to the pioneering partnership between ADSL and ACI for Novel Food Applications, the Green Bridge Gateway provides members with support in entering the UK & EU’s CBD market, and will provide access to regulatory advice, toxicology data, supply chain expertise, lab testing and track and trace blockchain technology to propel the industry forward.
