Haiti - WFP wants to buy 1,750 tons of rice locally produced


Agriculture in Haiti, Very Primitive
Some good news for the Haitian farmers - The World Food Programme (WFP) has launched a new competitive tender (appel d'offre) for the supply of 1,750 metric tons of rice locally produced by farmers' organizations for their school feeding program.

Better known in Haiti by it's French acronym, Programme Alimentaire Mondial (PAM), WFP is supporting the Haiti Ministry of Agriculture's call to "kore production nationale la."

The objective of the government of Haiti is to increase local agricultural production in Haiti in order to reduce food insecurity while increasing Haitian farmers' access to markets.

The fact that an organization such as WFP want to buy local food it more than good news. Let's hope other organizations follow in their foot steps

Agriculture is considered the cornerstone of reconstruction in Haiti.

According to news from Radio Metropole in Haiti, WFP is planning to buy more local food next year, and locally produced milk for their "Let Agogo" program.

What do you think about that?
