Young entrepreneurs focus on food security through agriculture

A number of young farmers and agro-processors have started an initiative they believes is the best approach to achieving food security.

An opportunity to showcase their products and services was provided through the inaugural Market Experience hosted by Admac Gourmet and Health Food in is Parking Lot in Beausejour Gros Islet.

The showcase was a celebration of local products, among them ground provisions, meat and fish, agro-processed foods, baked goods and planting material.

The Market Experience is likely to be a monthly exercise. Interested persons should call Eric Simmons at 451-680 or 723-6969.

Eric Simmons and a few of the participants spoke to Calabash TV and the Caribbean Business Report.
