Latest Market Info: Aug, 2023

Haiti has experienced an atypical rainy season this year, with the main rainy season beginning somewhat later than normal. Earlier in the year, some producers reported unusually early rains during March and April that lowered yields when compared to previous years. However, over the last few weeks, these yields have returned to their normal levels.

Vetiver Oil experienced a small dip in production due to decreased global demand, COVID-19 complications, ongoing political instability, and a small earthquake. Fuel prices remain one of the largest pressures on distilleries; political instability and logistical issues have made securing fuel within the region difficult for local producers. This activity is likely to keep prices firm, though the collection and distillation of vetiver still continues to play an integral role in supporting thousands of Haitian families.
