While we take pleasure in terms of our contributions made to the economies of countries within which we operate through the buying and selling of local Jamaican Products, the provision of such products to clientele within the marketplace, and the employment of local workers (through direct employment and indirectly through our supply chain); we still believe in providing to the communities within which we operate from and not just a business perspective.
It is against this background that Jamaican Fresh is determined to provide additional community support through education, health, community outreach and environmental initiatives through financial contribution and in-kind donations; provision of developmental incentives to staff and their families and encouraging employees to serve their communities and country through various charitable initiatives.
We are committed to being a good corporate citizen, mindful of our responsibility to give back to the community and countries in which we live and operate our business.
Everywhere we do business we take satisfaction in our contributions towards protection of the environment. Through the provision of chemical and pesticide free ecosystem and botanical products, our company encourages the replanting of these indigenous plants and overall seeks to operate in an environmentally efficient manner.
