Local, Sustainable, RELIABLE, Accessible
The Pacific Superfood
‘Ulu, or breadfruit, is a traditional Polynesian staple now being "rediscovered" as an incredible source of gluten-free, high protein, low fat starch. It is rich in calcium, magnesium, essential amino acids, vitamin A, C and B complex groups, and is better for you than other starches like potatoes, wheat and rice!
The Hawai‘i ‘Ulu Producers Cooperative is now working to revitalize this amazing food as a viable crop and dietary staple - contributing to Hawai‘i's food security as well as broader market demand. We provide food safe, commercial volumes of fresh and frozen ‘ulu year round, ensuring you never run out again!
BEHIND THE SCENES OF HUPC
Hawai‘i ‘Ulu Producers Coop, or HUPC, was established in summer 2016 with 9 pilot farmer-members from around Hawai‘i Island and has nearly doubled in size over the past year. Our ‘ulu is grown sustainably using diversified agroforestry practices and no toxic chemicals - the way it has traditionally been cultivated throughout Polynesia for millennia!
