Finding a factory can feel daunting. What country do you choose? How do you find a quality factory? What are import and export tariffs? Take some of the pressure off by starting in Haiti. Here are 4 reasons why you should manufacture in Haiti now.
1 | Support a Developing Economy
The struggle is real. Unlike that brief moment in 2010 when we noticed Haiti after the earthquake and emotionally sent a bunch of relief money their way, this small island country has still not recovered. About 50% of Haitians are unemployed and 3 out of 4 households don’t have running water. You can be the work Haiti needs to strengthen its economy.
2 | Free Trade
If you’re going to start dipping your toe in the international waters of manufacturing, why not start where its free trade? When you manufacture in Haiti you benefit from the Carribean Trade Promotion Act (CBTPA), the Haitian Hemispheric Opportunity through Partnership Engagement Act (HOPE), & the Haitian Economic Life Program (HELP).
3 | Easy & Accessible
If you live in the US, especially the East Coast, it’s the closest international manufacturing destination you can find. Flights to Haiti are often quite cheap and super fast, so you don’t feel too burdened when making factory trips.
4 | Ethically Approved
As it’s a small island, there are only 27 factories, and guess what? All 27 are Betterwork Certified. Boom.
