The Hawaii Medicinal Tea & Herb Cooperative (HTC) is a Consumer Cooperative established in 2016 on the Big Island of Hawaii. The organization was formed in an attempt to redefine the role of commercial agriculture in the state by using a model that promotes participation, inclusivity, and equitable distribution of revenue to all participating members. This is achieved through the consumer cooperative structure and strategic development of commercially sustainable, high-value agriculture products. HTC intends to fill the void left by the discriminatory, failed plantations with an environmentally and socially-responsible program that bridges the gap between resources (finance, real estate) and capabilities to revitalize Hawaiian agriculture and our local communities.
