Why we invest

Mountain Hazelnuts takes a systemic approach to creating reliable income generation opportunities for Bhutan's poorest families while restoring ecosystem health and maintaining community cohesion. Their fully integrated nut company connects smallholder farmers to international markets, more than doubling farm income. As Bhutan's first 100% foreign direct investment enterprise, Mountain Hazelnuts' market-based approach and unique partnership with the government sets a standard for future investment in the country, one that serves its people, environment and public institutions.
