USAID Administrator Mark Green visits Etoile du Nord

On December 20, USAID Administrator Mark Green and US Ambassador Sison visited the Etoile du Nord sorghum conditioning center in Port-au-Prince, accompanied by the LEVE Chief of Party Robin Padberg, and our Agribusiness Team Lead, Philippe Bellerive. Etoile du Nord is a partner of USAID LEVE and plays a key role in the development of Haitian sorghum value chain, from the fields of local farmers thanks to the Smallholder Alliance for Sorghum in Haiti (SMASH) , to the production line of BRANA S.A. with its popular Malta H beverage. We are thrilled to be part of a strong partnership with the local industry leaders like BRANA, small and medium enterprises like Etoile du Nord and local farmers, to support Haitian agricultural value chains and create job opportunities.
