“The message of buying quality Jamaican products also means ensuring the quality of life for Jamaican producers,” notes Valerie Veira, Chief Executive Officer of the JBDC. She further noted that all stakeholders would be supporting each other for growth with this effort.To support the campaign, both JMA and JBDC will stage events that will provide the opportunity for locals to see Jamaican products live and direct.
The JMA hosted its ‘Buy Jamaican Road show & Motorcade on November 5 in targeted areas of Kingston & St. Andrew.
The road show began in Half-Way Tree and culminated in Downtown Kingston with a grand finale and product exhibition in the St. William Grants Park.
The event showcased the best of local manufacturers as well as a number of micro and small producers.Complementary to this programme will be the annual JBDC Christmas Artisan Village, Kumba Mi Yabba at Jamaica College on December 17 & 18.
