- The earthquake of January 12th 2010 destroyed Haiti’s only mill, Le Moulin d’Haiti (LMH).
- The mill owners estimate that it will take at least one year to reestablish the mill capacity
- At the time of the earthquake LMH produced 80% of all wheat flour consumed in Haiti: 15,000 metric tons (MT) or 300,000 fifty-kilo sacks per month.
- The consequence has been a steep rise in the cost of wheat flour. Immediately following the earthquake the price went up 18 percent. Today it is 36% above pre earthquake levels.
