Lavi Spicy Peanut Butter is transforming lives in Haiti by improving smallholder farmer productivity, creating jobs, linking smallholder farmers to stable markets, and bringing nutritious snacks to schools.
Spicy peanut butter, “manba pike” in Haitian Creole, is a homemade staple in every Haitian household. Served most often on toast at breakfast, spicy peanut butter is a uniquely Haitian twist on an American classic. Made with peanuts sourced directly from our network of smallholder farmers, Lavi Spicy Peanut Butter has a touch of Haitian scotch bonnet peppers, “piman bouk”, that makes it special.
Lavi was born out of partnerships between multiple organizations, including leading Haitian social enterprise Acceso Haiti, with the goal of improving incomes for thousands of hardworking peanut farmers through access to new markets.
