Interview with Mr Raul Bermudez of BreadfruitTrees.com, headquartered in Trinidad and Tobago, West Indies

While they could provide construction materials, medicine, fabric, glue, insect repellent, animal feed, and are high in energy, low in fat, a good source of fibre, calcium, copper, magnesium, iron, potassium, thiamine, niacin, antioxidants and carotenoids; we are focussed on the food mass in addressing growing demand for affordable and sustainable food and nutrition and in the extreme economic and social circumstance, preventing hunger and malnutrition.
