Goals: Rural economic empowerment, sustainable food source
Partner: Papaye Peasant Movement (MPP)
Moringa is widely recognized as the next super food. Small farmer co-ops have been growing the tree for several years in Haiti. C4K is working with MPP in a collaborative effort to expand production to commercially viable levels by teaching best practices to grow, harvest, and process moringa. By aligning with international ingredient suppliers, Haitian moringa can be integrated as an ingredient to health food energy bars or drink supplements. Such economic opportunities will empower Haitian farmers with sustainable income opportunities and offer an all-natural, authentic product to the health food marketplace.
