AGRO-PROCESSORS in Region Two were, on Sunday, given the opportunity to showcase their products and services at a mini-expo held at the Bacchus Play Park, Region Two. The event was coordinated by entrepreneur, Tatyana Moore of Miracle Oils, in collaboration with the Ministry of Tourism Industry and Commerce.

In attendance at the agro-processing fair was Director of Business, John Edghill. Edghill met with local entrepreneurs and used the opportunity to advise them on how to apply for loans/grants through the Ministry of Tourism, Industry and Commerce.

During his interaction, he told the agro-processors that the ministry is giving grants up to $500,000 to assist small business to prosper. He also called on them to collaborate and become business partners to further enhance their businesses.

Chief Executive Officer of Imam Bacchus and Sons Limited, Aadil Baksh said the fair gives the entrepreneurs an opportunity to create a network where they can market their products.

According to Moore, the event was geared at showcasing the work of young entrepreneurs and pointed out that businesses did not have to pay for space as all they were required to do was show up with their local products. The tents and tables were provided by the Tourism Industry and Commerce Ministry.

“I am glad for such exposure, since the pandemic, we haven’t get to do anything much. Business was slow so I’m glad for this mini-expo to showcase my products,” Abiola said.

Ten local entrepreneurs participated in the fair. On display were jams, pepper sauce, cakes, oils, massage and décor services as well as vet clinic.
