High level Cuban del­e­ga­tion vis­its Baron Foods Lim­ited

The Star (St. Lucia) - - LOCAL -

Baron Foods Lim­ited, Saint Lu­cia's lead­ing man­u­fac­tur­ing com­pany, on Tues­day 31st May, 2016, wel­comed a high level del­e­ga­tion from Cuba. The del­e­ga­tion was led by the Cuban Deputy Min­is­ter of Trade and For­eign In­vest­ment, Her Ex­cel­lency Ileana Nuñez Mor­doche.

The Co­or­di­na­tor for Caribbean af­fairs at the same Min­istry, Mr. Je­sus Gon­za­les Perez, and the Am­bas­sador of Cuba in Saint Lu­cia, His Ex­cel­lency Jorge Soberon, were also part of the team.

They were taken on a guided tour of the state-of-theart op­er­a­tions of Baron Foods Lim­ited at Vieux Fort.

The vis­i­tors were ob­vi­ously im­pressed to have seen the full op­er­a­tion at work, along with cer­ti­fi­ca­tion pro­cesses be­ing en­forced.

Baron Foods Lim­ited Chief Ex­ec­u­tive Of­fi­cer, Mr. Ronald Ram­jat­tan, said it was a plea­sure to wel­come the Cuban del­e­ga­tion.

Mr. Ram­jat­tan dis­closed that they had ar­rived at a time when his com­pany is about to do business with Cuba.

Last year the Baron Foods Lim­ited CEO at­tended the Ha­vana In­ter­na­tional Fair, FIHAV 2015, as his com­pany moved closer to ex­port­ing its world-class prod­ucts to Cuba. Mr. Ram­jat­tan's goal is to cre­ate an ex­port path to Cuba where other lo­cal com­pa­nies can fol­low.

This amid an­tic­i­pa­tion of the Span­ish-speak­ing coun­try open­ing up to business with the rest of the world as the United States con­tin­ues to nor­mal­ize re­la­tions with Ha­vana.

Baron Foods Lim­ited al­ready has plants lo­cated in three Caribbean coun­tries, man­u­fac­tures over 150 prod­ucts and has a net­work of dis­trib­u­tors in the Caribbean, Europe, Canada, the United States and Asia.
