Jakub Duda appointed Country Manager of Hempacco Europe

SAN DIEGO, CA – Hempacco Co, Inc. (NASDAQ: HPCO) (“Hempacco”), a hemp smokables company Disrupting Tobacco’s™ nearly $1 Trillion industry with hemp cigarettes, smoking paper, and alternatives to nicotine tobacco, today announced the opening of its European office as part of its international expansion strategy. Hempacco Europe, SP. Z O.O., located in Warsaw, Poland, will be the company’s new European subsidiary.

This follows the company’s appointment of Jakub Duda as Country Manager of Hempacco Europe. Jakub is a creative Business Development Manager with over ten years of experience leading international direct selling and retail businesses. Duda has been involved in the cannabis industry since 2017 as a Director of multiple hemp brand companies, including General Hemp, Complete Hemp Technologies, and Hempets. He previously worked as Vice President of EMEA Operations for Kannaway and Medical Marijuana, Inc., introducing companies to Europe and establishing a multimillion-dollar business.

“I am excited and look forward to the challenge of disrupting the tobacco industry in Europe,” said Jakub Duda, Country Manager of Hempacco Europe. “I love Hempacco for its spirit and innovative approach and am confident that together we are well positioned to become the hemp smokable global leader.”

“We are ambitiously tapping into the European market, ready to build relationships with new customers,” said Sandro Piancone, CEO of Hempacco. “Europe will be a huge market for our portfolio of hemp smokable products and papers. Once we ship into Poland, we can ship into the European Union.”

“Our much-anticipated opening of Hempacco Europe is finally upon us, and we remain enthusiastic about the potential for our business within the European Union,” said Dr. Stuart Titus, Hempacco’s Chairman of the Board. “Our EU Country Manager, Jakub Duda, has shown great skill and expertise in prior cannabinoid business efforts from Poland, which provides an optimal entryway to EU member nations. In Europe, smoking remains quite popular and resembles the popularity in the US during the 1950s and 1960s. Formal cannabis regulations are developing, but through much hard work, the EIHA (European Industrial Hemp Association) group has carved out an excellent pathway for legal hemp and CBD-related products. We look forward to establishing Hempacco as a new and upcoming participant in the European cannabis, hemp, and CBD communities.”
