The facility, which is expected to break ground in mid-2011 and begin operations in early 2012, will be equipped with rugged, low-maintenance equipment suited to operations in Haiti.  

Hiring and Training Locally for Sustainability

The new facility will be constructed by local workers. Abbott experts in nutrition science, engineering, quality and manufacturing will join PIH staff in supporting all aspects of the project, including design and construction of the facility, product quality and safety, and expansion of production capabilities.

When completed, the facility will be able to employ up to 60 Haitians to handle production. The initiative also will help expand agricultural development in the region by working with hundreds of local farmers to source peanuts, the main ingredient in Nourimanba. PIH and Abbott experts will conduct extensive training to build local capabilities and develop the skills of local workers to ensure long-term sustainability.
