In 2015, Maly Sebastien-Paul, a first-generation immigrant, traveled to Haiti’s Central Plateau to see where his parents grew up. The fertile land was abundant with crops, but the people lived in extreme poverty with poor access to education, healthcare, and clean water.
Maly wanted to help and had an idea: Import the excess food being grown in the region to the U.S. This would drive desperately needed funds into the community by paying farmers fair prices for their crops and creating jobs for sorters, cleaners, and drivers.
And so Horizon Vert was born! Today the company imports food from around the world, supports local agricultural communities, and provides high-quality, natural foods to consumers.
