Growing demand for Caribbean food and drink in the UK was highlighted during a visit by delegates representing a Jamaican trade mission to Grace Foods UK’s headquarters in Welwyn Garden City, Hertfordshire.
Six representatives from the MICAF Fresh Produce trade mission, organised by JAMPRO, the Jamaican government agency which promotes export business opportunities, heard how Grace Foods’ authentic Jamaican products had helped the company to establish a strong, market-leadership position.
“We were delighted to explain that the strong and growing demand in the UK for products supplied from Jamaica was directly supporting the Jamaican economy,” said Grace Foods UK’s Managing Director Adam Reader.
Grace Foods ‘authentic Jamaican’ product offering is comprehensive and includes Grace branded Callaloo, Ackee, Jerk Seasoning and the Tropical Rhythms soft drinks range.
Jamaica headquartered GraceKennedy, Grace Foods parent company, has also entered into partnership with over 60 Jamaican farmers to supply the hot peppers which are used to make the hot pepper mash used in one of Grace Foods’ flasgship products, Encona West Indian Hot Pepper Sauce.
