Calling Hawaii’s Value-added agricultural producers

2012 Value Added Agriculture Product Manufacturing Grant is OPEN!

Hawaii companies; Would your product benefit from dehydration? juicing? pulverizing? concentrating? purée?

How about making a tea from your product? a nutraceutical? a fruit leather? a cosmetic? dye?
Can you bottle it? add seasonings to make a new product?

GREAT opportunity for Hawaii agricultural value-added producers!
