The exhibition is being held as VincyKlus moves to further increase and strengthen its members’ capability through marketing and promotions, a release from the organizers said.

The exhibition, which runs from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., will provide the agro-processing cluster’s members with an opportunity to market their products/services, capitalizing on the chance to interact with those visiting for Vincy Mas 2013. It would also serve as another opportunity for the cluster to attract new members.

Head of the Marketing and Promotions Committee Keisha Phillips says the exhibition promises to be exciting.

“We will have sixteen agro-processors displaying a range of products that include wines, potato and plantain chips, essences, coconut oils in different flavours, pepper sauces, green seasonings, chicken ham, jams and jellies, punch de crème, chocolate sticks, blackfish oil, spices, fruit juices, and craft,” she said.

“There will be sampling and patrons will also be able to purchase or place orders for products of their choice; so we are inviting one and all to come out and support us, see and learn more about what is being made here in St Vincent and also learn more about VincyKlus.”

VincyKlus was founded on September 16, 2012, under a special initiative by the Centre for Enterprise Development Inc (CED), through its EU-funded Business Gateway Project. It was officially launched on November 10, 2012.
