BOULDER — Evo Hemp, a Boulder-based hemp food company, is expanding its footprint into Whole Foods and H-E-B supermarkets.

The company, which is registered with the Secretary of State under Hemp Health LLC and makes the Hemp Bar, will be in 105 additional Whole Foods stores in the Northeast, Northern California and Pacific Northwest, effectively doubling its Whole Foods network.

The brand also signed a deal with 122 H-E-B stores in Texas.

It can now be found in more than 4,000 retailers nationwide.

“The hemp industry is slated to grow to $1.8 billion in sales by 2020, led by hemp food, body care, and CBD-based products,” co-founder Jourdan Samel said in a prepared statement. “We are on pace to have Evo Hemp products in more than 8,000 stores by 2020.”

Evo Hemp recently announced a new line of CBD extracts and soft gel capsules made by Native American hemp activist Alex White Plume on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation of South Dakota. The company launched six years ago with its line of fruit and nut Hemp Bars, a raw superfood bar. The company has since expanded to protein powder, protein bars, hemp oil, hemp extract and hemp hearts.
