Jamaica expands cassava industry with Colombia’s support

The Jamaican Government plans to expand the cassava industry in partnerships with the private sector partner Jamaican beer Red Stripe and the University of the West Indies, with support from the Colombian government. Prime Minister Portia Simpson Miller, said the partnership between government and the manufacturer of red Stripe, which is using the tuber as part of its brewing process, has shown that the industry can grow. PM Miller stated, “As this new industry develops, I look forward to the opening soon, of a new cassava processing plant in Elim, St. Elizabeth, and thanks to the Government of Colombia for having provided this gift. (…) We are also strengthening the cassava industry by working with the University of the West Indies, to produce cassava flour for use in the baking of bread.” PM Miller also emphasised the importance of the agricultural industry for rural development and food security.
