This hub was launched in 2021 as an agribusiness initiative with both a rubber proof-of-concept, vanilla model farm and network of out growers. Tapped rubber is now being purchased from growers to promote their interest in maintaining a regular supply and vanilla seedlings are being inter-planted among established rubber trees to boost grower incomes.
