The new partnership, Hempire Paraguay, to produce and sell hemp cigarettes with the potential to export to over thirty countries worldwide

San Diego, California--(Newsfile Corp. - February 21, 2023) - Hempacco Co, Inc. (NASDAQ: HPCO) ("Hempacco") today announced a new international partnership with Healthy Grains S.A., a Paraguayan agricultural conglomerate. The newly formed company, Hempire Paraguay E.A.S, is equally owned by Hempacco and Healthy Grains S.A. and was incorporated in Paraguay. It will be a new base in Paraguay, producing a new line of hemp cigarettes with the potential to export to over thirty countries worldwide. This new partnership helps further Hempacco's mission of Disrupting Tobacco's™ nearly $1 Trillion industry.

Through this strategic alliance, Hempacco will contribute its machinery, technology, and intellectual property to produce hemp cigarettes. Hempacco will export hemp flower to Paraguay until Hempire Paraguay E.A.S. is self-sufficient to cultivate its own. Hempacco will also bring its existing and future portfolio of celebrity partnership brands, such as Cheech & Chong, Rick Ross, and Snoop Dogg. These and other mutually developed hemp cigarette brands will be manufactured in Paraguay jointly through Hempire Paraguay E.A.S. and exported to various customers worldwide.

For its part, Healthy Grains S.A. will provide the manufacturing facilities, its portfolio of sixteen international certifications and validations that guarantee product quality, and years of experience in carbon-positive hemp production. In addition, it will introduce its distributors, the colossal Brazilian market, and a talented sales team with experience exporting to thirty-plus countries.

Healthy Grains S.A. is Latin America's largest agricultural business exporter, with the first and only certified (by SGS USA) carbon-positive hemp production globally. It sees in the hemp industry an opportunity for an industrial revolution with environmental and social impacts, providing technical, agronomic, and financial support to small farmers and indigenous communities in Paraguay to start cultivating hemp.
