A trade mission, organised by JAMPRO, the Jamaican government agency which promotes export business opportunities, brought six representatives for their MICAF Fresh Produce trade mission to visit Grace Foods UK's headquarters in Welwyn Garden City, Hertfordshire. The group heard about the growing demand for Caribbean food and drink in the UK, and how Grace Foods' authentic Jamaican products had helped them 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.

GraceKennedy, Grace Foods parent company has entered into partnership with over 60 Jamaican farmers to supply hot peppers which are used in the hot pepper mash used in Encona West Indian Hot Pepper Sauce, one of Grace Foods' flagship products.

Grace Foods ‘authentic Jamaican’ product offering is comprehensive and includes Grace branded Callaloo, Ackee, Jerk Seasoning and the Tropical Rhythms soft drinks range.
