Hawaiʻi Agricultural Foundation

Episode 13: Open for Business Series – Let’s Talk Tourism

Tuesday, Dec.15 • 6-7pm

For this special episode of EAT THINK DRINK, the Hawai‘i Agricultural Foundation (HAF) has partnered with Hawai‘i Lodging and Tourism Association (HLTA) to discuss the road to recovery for the tourism industry.

The mandatory 14-day quarantine, travel restrictions and shutdowns imposed since the arrival of the COVID-19 pandemic has almost decimated our visitor industry, displacing an estimated 25 percent of our local workforce. As unemployment numbers skyrocketed to Great Depression levels, it’s clear that Hawai‘i needs its number one industry.

HAF Ag Park at Kunia

The HAF Ag Park at Kunia was established in July 2011 through a partnership between the Hawaiʻi Agricultural Foundation (HAF), Island Palm Communities (IPC) and Bayer U.S.  The partnership made available land, infrastructure and technical assistance to help farmers gain economic self-sufficiency, scale and access to markets throughout Hawaiʻi.
