Hawaii Ulu Co-op (HUC) is a farmer-owned business working to revitalize ‘ulu or breadfruit as a viable crop and dietary staple by empowering farmers as change-makers in Hawaiʻi’s food system.
Formed in 2016 with 9 small, diversified growers on Hawai’i Island, HUC has grown to over 100 member-farms on three islands (Hawai’i Island, Maui, and Oʻahu) and is now the foremost breadfruit farmer organization in Hawai’i. By working together, HUC farmers are able to offer consistent, high-quality ‘ulu products that are delicious, versatile, local, healthy, accessible, and sustainable.
The co-op is committed to the revival of ‘ulu to strengthen Hawai‘i’s food security and to the value of mālama ʻāina – care or protection of the earth – by using environmentally responsible production methods.
Our vision is a thriving cooperative that sustains and uplifts producers, consumers, and society as a whole. Farmer owned, ‘āina grown—from our trees to your table.
