Haiti - Economy : Haiti again banana exporter
Tuesday, September 8, in Cap Haitien, a year after the planting of the first seedlings of the AGRITRANS company http://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-12257-haiti-agriculture-$27m-for-the-production-of-bananas-for-export.html , a cargo ship from Germany came to take delivery of the first Haitian organic banana. 100 tonnes of bananas (about 8,000 banana bunches) have been loaded after undergoing quality control from German experts sent on site, before taking the sea to Germany.

AGRITRANS can now be optimistic by having raised its first challenge, to enter the European market. The Haitian company predicts that by 2017, 450 banana containers will be shipped each week to the European market.

Recall that the project, which matures for almost 10 years in the head of his promoter Jovenel Moise was presented in November 2013 at the University Henry Christophe (Limonade) http://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-9908-haiti-economy-major-strategic-projects-of-the-northern-region.html . The project, established in the commune of Trou-du-Nord, brings together more than 3,000 farmers from various associations and aims the production of organic bananas for export. 2 million seedlings will be planted over a thousand hectares, as part of this initiative. To achieve its objectives, the FEPA/Agritrans consortium has modern agricultural equipment, pumps for irrigation, an artificial lake with a capacity of 700.000 gallons and plans to create about 3,000 jobs.

The Haitian Government, through the Industrial Development Fund (IDF), has put six million US dollars available to the promoter of this innovative and ambitious project, whose total cost amounts to $ 27 million. In order to allow Agritrans SA to strengthen, an additional $15 million will be advanced to him.

Note that the businessman, Jovenel Moise the former CEO of AGRITRANS created the surprise by becoming a candidate for the presidency of Haiti under the banner of PHTK. He has been replaced as head of the company by Pierre Richard-Joseph.
