Re:Fresh Juice + Cleanse owner Liam O’Neil has taken his Aus­tralia-first fresh hemp milk which is made in East Vic­to­ria Park across the coun­try. Hemp milk is made from the seeds of the hemp plant, cannabis sativa. Re­port,

WA juice pro­ducer Re:Fresh Juice + Cleanse will be tak­ing its Aus­trali­afirst fresh hemp milk across the coun­try this week.

The busi­ness has a fac­tory in East Vic­to­ria Park and a new pop-up store at 11 King Wil­liam Street in Bayswa­ter.

Hemp milk is made from the seeds of the hemp plant, cannabis sativa.

The com­pany pro­duces hemp milk and juices daily and dis­trib­utes it to cafes, restau­rants, ho­tels, su­per­mar­kets and homes.

Owner and chef Liam O’Neil started the busi­ness three years ago after touring the world as a per­sonal chef for 16 years, serv­ing mu­si­cians such as Sir Paul McCart­ney, Madonna and Prince.

Mr O’Neil, of Mt Law­ley, said he would now look at a trial run of hemp milk in Syd­ney and aimed to stock it in stores na­tion­ally within four to eight weeks.

“Ba­si­cally, the rea­son why I de­cided to do it was be­cause there was a lot of peo­ple who have nut al­ler­gies and all the juice com­pa­nies do an al­mond milk, so I wanted to do a nut-free milk,” he said.

“I was wait­ing un­til hemp seeds be­came le­gal to sell as a food prod­uct, so as soon as they be­came le­gal I jumped on it and cre­ated a recipe.

“The health ben­e­fits are in­cred­i­ble and it is nut-free, dairy-free, ve­gan and all plant-based.

“We have just launched a barista blend es­pe­cially for cafes, so that is go­ing well.

“The good thing about Perth is we are so iso­lated – you can cre­ate some­thing here with­out the rest of Aus­tralia know­ing about it.”
