Trends & Tools: Using the Right Equipment to Make Market-Hot Extracts & Concentrates

July 23, 2022 | 10:30 am | Room 1 | Extraction

Extracts and concentrates have become dominant segments of the cannabis market. Available in a wide variety of formats, extracts and concentrates offer companies the ability to create unique formulations that appeal to a wide range of consumers – from connoisseurs to the cannacurious.

But creating high-quality extracts and concentrates requires the right cannabis processing and extraction equipment. Yet, not every company is using the equipment required to create high-quality products. More importantly, not every supplier has the expertise in these highly specialized products to recommend the right equipment for your facility.

In this session, join Ben Britton and Mike Maibach from Agrify who have experience designing, building and operating state-of-the-art extraction facilities. They’ll explore the trends in extracts and concentrates and let you know what consumers want today. They’ll also explain which equipment is needed to create today’s top-tier formulated products and outline what to look for when choosing a supplier.
