Baron Foods poised to en­ter Cuban mar­ket

The Star (St. Lucia) - - LOCAL -

Saint Lu­cia’s lead­ing man­u­fac­tur­ing com­pany, Baron Foods Lim­ited, is poised to lead the way for other lo­cal man­u­fac­tur­ers to en­ter the Cuban mar­ket. Five Baron Foods prod­ucts have al­ready been ac­cepted by the Span­ish ter­ri­tory.

Man­ag­ing Di­rec­tor of Baron Foods, Ron­ald Ram­jat­tan said the process in­volved among other things, guar­an­tee­ing that the prod­ucts are of in­ter­na­tional stan­dards and sub­mit­ting them to test­ing in Cuban lab­o­ra­to­ries.

“I have done all of those and my next step now is ba­si­cally to have prod­ucts pre­sented to Cuban Chefs, ho­tels and restau­rants, in­tro­duc­ing my prod­ucts to the Cuban mar­ket,” Mr. Ram­jat­tan dis­closed.

He said the Saint Lu­cian Em­bassy in Cuba has been work­ing as­sid­u­ously with him over the last two years on the pro­ject.

Ram­jat­tan this month joined six other lo­cal man­u­fac­tur­ers at a busi­ness fo­rum in Cuba that was held from July 15 -17, 2015.

“Dur­ing my stay in Cuba we met the rel­e­vant Min­is­ters and they now will be us­ing Baron Foods as the first com­pany that will be in­tro­duc­ing its prod­ucts and ser­vices in Cuba with the rest of the com­pa­nies from Saint Lu­cia un­der that same tent,” the Baron Foods Man­ag­ing Di­rec­tor re­vealed. He said he was grate­ful to TEPA for us­ing his com­pany as the “guinea pig.” Baron Foods cur­rently ex­ports its range of condi­ments to twenty-five coun­tries.
