The goal of each of us at Maui Third Wave is to become "Good Ancestors" - Alika Atay, President MTW
Food expenditures of local consumers in Hawaii is estimated to have been $5.5 billion in 2018. Assuming that 85% of the food we consume is imported, this translates to $4.675 billion leaving our state. Replacing just 10% of the food we currently import would amount to approximately $468 million, generating nearly $100 million in earnings.
More importantly though, MTW’s use of proprietary, HINA, "Better-than-Organic" growing techniques that produce vastly superior yields in terms of biomass volume and quality. Maui Third Wave’s culture and farming protocols will produce what is arguably the single highest quality food possible.
As a diversified agriculture company, MTW’s revenues will derive from such products as noni, ulu, tomatoes, ginger, sweet potatoes, and other foreign and indigenous foods. MTW’s business model squarely acknowledges the food homogenization and scarcity issues in Hawaii by using traditional and long view approaches to farming.
HINA practices are more than tilling the soil, amendments and planting. They involve a very complex and exacting protocol passed down through multiple generations that adds pule (prayer), chants, and spirituality at a level of “shamanic like” consistency.
All farming and farmers will adhere to these methods which have proven over the centuries to work best in the complex unique environment of the Hawaiian Islands.
The Company’s President and it’s Agricultural V.P. are recognized as “Master Gardeners” and Keepers of the "HINA Practice". Their expertise and combined knowledge of HINA are considered as one of the Company’s major proprietary assets that will bring forward success in the endeavor to grow sustainable “Better then Organic” crops with maximum yields that will insure fulfillment of the Company’s Diversified Agricultural goals.
Among other things, MTW will be a grower/cultivator, processor and distributor of cannabidiol (CBD), cannabigerol (CBG), and hemp related products in the State of Hawaii for domestic and international consumption. Through distribution contracts currently in negotiation the Company plans to also supply various cannabis extracts and isolates (CBD, CBG, CBN, etc.) to distributors and other world-wide retail outlets. By 2025, the cannabidiol (CBD) oil market alone is expected by some financial experts to be a 25-billion-dollar industry.
With a worldwide liberalization of laws governing hemp, CBD, and related agricultural products, MTW intends to get ahead of the market and utilize its unique positioning and strengths to become a world leader in hemp/cannabis production and the resulting products thereof.
Leveraging off that superior Island reputation, MTW’s ability to produce “Better-than-Organic", "HINA Certified", Maui-grown CBD Oil has already attracted many mainland and international companies and significant distribution contracts are now being negotiated.
