Aloha from the Agribusiness Development Corporation
…and welcome to our website. The Agribusiness Development Corporation was created by the State Legislature in 1994 (Act 264 SLH, codified in chapter 163D, Hawaii Revised Statutes). Administratively attached to the Hawaii Department of Agriculture, we are governed by an eleven-member Board of Directors consisting of three ex-officio and eight private citizens appointed by the Governor. Our mandate is to develop an aggressive and dynamic agribusiness development program to facilitate the transition of agricultural lands and infrastructure from plantation operations into other agricultural enterprises, to carry on the marketing analysis necessary to direct the evolution of the agricultural industry, and to provide the leadership for the development, financing, improvement, and enhancement of the agricultural industry.
