THE JA­MAICA AgroPro­ces­sors As­so­ci­a­tion’s (JAPA) jour­ney with Tech So­lu­tions Lim­ited (TSL) can be traced back to the 1990s. It was a very piv­otal time for the ac­kee in­dus­try as the prod­uct was banned from the USA for many years. TSL was in­stru­men­tal in pre­par­ing many com­pa­nies to be­come HACCP-com­pli­ant, and it was mainly through the hard work and ded­i­ca­tion of Dr Gor­don and his team from TSL that ac­cess was once again granted to this lu­cra­tive mar­ket.

Since then, our re­la­tion­ship has con­tin­ued to grow from strength to strength. TSL is the com­pany that you im­me­di­ately think of when you have a cri­sis, such as in 2006 when once again ac­k­ees were banned from en­ter­ing the USA. TSL played a crit­i­cal role in the re-en­try to this mar­ket. They are truly a com­pany that of­fers so­lu­tions to the prob­lems faced in the food in­dus­try. They of­fer a wide range of pro­fes­sional ser­vices that is com­pa­ra­ble with any First World coun­try.

TSL has kept abreast with the ev­er­chang­ing global stan­dards in the food in­dus­try and is well re­spected by all the for­eign ac­cred­i­ta­tion bod­ies. The team is very mo­ti­vated and fully com­mit­ted to the com­pany and they re­main a con­stant year af­ter year. Their ser­vice is avail­able to all busi­nesses, from the very small to the very large. Each gets the same level of pro­fes­sional ser­vice and at­ten­tion, as they recog­nise that all large com­pa­nies were once mi­cro or small com­pa­nies. TSL’s knowl­edge and ex­per­tise is un­matched in the in­dus­try, and once you en­gage them you know that, with­out a doubt, you will be get­ting first-class ser­vice.

JAPA con­grat­u­lates TSL on their 20th an­niver­sary and wish them con­tin­ued suc­cess go­ing for­ward. We are truly proud of you.

Henry Wil­son – 20 years
