Haiti: Towards the use of Blockchain technology in agribusiness

Within the framework of the Business and Investment Development Project (PDAI), implemented since 2013 and financed by the World Bank to the tune of 20 million dollars, the Ministry of Trade and Industry (MCI) intends to boost the agribusiness in the country, using Blockchain technology to provide an innovative solution to the actors of the agricultural chain. Mango, avocado and pineapple from the departments of Artibonite, Center, Nippes and NorthEast are the sectors identified for this first pilot phase of the project.

Following a call for tenders launched by the Ministry, AgriLedger is the firm that has been selected to deploy and pilot a blockchain solution that will facilitate payments and traceability of fresh fruit value chains. The implementation of such a system for the Haitian government, will allow farmers to sell directly in efficient markets, where the price is determined by supply and demand and not by the bargaining power.
