The Agribusiness Development Corporation was formed in 1994 to facilitate and provide direction for the transition of Hawaii's agriculture industry from a dominance of sugar and pineapple to one composed of a diversity of different crops.

The mission of the Agribusiness Development Corporation (ADC) is to provide leadership and advocacy for the conversion of agribusiness into a dynamic growth industry through the use of financial and other tools enabled by the founding legislation for the pursuit of specific projects to achieve the legislative objectives.

It's main objectives are:

  • To facilitate in the orderly transition of existing agribusiness resources of land, water and infrastructure as they become available;
  • To focus on specific marketing analysis for ADC identified projects and to utilize complementary marketing resources of related agencies
  • To provide the leadership for the development, financing, improvement, or enhancement of agribusiness enterprises;
  • To participate in county, state, and federal legislative initiatives to fulfill the purposes of the ADC.

Since its inception, ADC has participated in a variety of projects pairing qualified farmers with landowners and providing assistance to both parties to ensure the success of such a partnership. ADC currently is actively pursuing projects on all the main islands of Hawaii, some with statewide implications.
