There are several ways to supply ‘ulu to the co-op:
Become a member of HUPC and receive a premium price and guaranteed market for all your fruit. For more information visit our membership page or contact us at email@example.com. There is no minimum number of trees required for membership - anyone with fruit is welcome!
Sell fruit to the co-op as a non-member. Farmers must coordinate drop off time and location with the manager before hand, and will receive a receipt for their fruit upon delivery. Payment is sent via check within 14 days.
Drop off locations: We have two aggregation hubs on the Big Island - one on in South Kona and the other in Hilo. Visit our Locationspage for more information.
All suppliers must meet co-op quality standards. We do not accept fruit that has been visibly lacerated or bruised, and only accept fully mature and semi-ripe fruit at this time. Please refer to this photo-based harvesting manual for more information:
