The Haskap Canada Association
HASKAP is the Japanese name for Lonicera caerulea. It has also been known as ‘Blue Honeysuckle’, ‘Honeyberry’, ‘Edible Honeysuckle’ and ‘Sweet Berry Honeysuckle’. When translated into English, it is sometimes spelled as Hascap, Haskaap and Hasukappu.
Haskap Canada Association (HCA) is a not for profit national organization that was developed out of the necessity to have one common entity that producers, plant breeders and consumers could contact for information and assistance.
- To promote the production and marketing of Haskap in Canada and abroad.
- To assist our members in finding processing and marketing opportunities for Canadian grown haskap.
- To acquire funding for haskap research and development.
- To facilitate information and technology transfer from research programs to industry.
