Who is Konopko?
We are a group of individuals and organisations who live and work in accordance with nature and the priciples of sustainability. Through the bussiness form of cooperative we connect producers to buyers, rural areas to urban areas and through this promoting self-sufficiency as well as locally grown production and green jobs. Considering all of the above stated, we aspire to diminish unemployment in local areas of interest (hemp producers, processors,...).
