The Smallholder Farmers Alliance (SFA) is growing lime trees as part of an initiative in which the Clinton Foundation has brought partners together to revitalize high-quality lime production in Haiti.
"In the 1980s, Firmenich sourced high quality lime oil from Haiti. Over time, the lime industry in Haiti disappeared. Now, more than 25 years later," said David Shipman, North America President of Firmenich, a leading flavors and fragrances company, "it is exciting to partner with the Clinton Foundation in distributing lime seedlings to smallholder farmers in Haiti to re-launch this important and much needed crop. In addition to providing farmers with a cash generating crop, this project also provides environmental benefits in the reforestation of Haiti."
