Growing the Haitian Coffee Sector

Haiti was once responsible for half the world's coffee production.

The Clinton Foundation is working to grow Haiti's coffee sector by bringing Haitian coffee to new markets and has facilitated new purchase agreements between Haitian coffee companies, cooperatives and international buyers.

In 2012, the Foundation began work on the Haiti Coffee Academy with international coffee company La Colombe Torrefaction. With support from the Leslois Shaw Foundation, the Haiti Coffee Academy will be a model coffee farm and training center which will serve rural coffee growing communities with the objective of improving crop yields, the quality of coffee grown, and access to markets and investments.
