St. Kitts and Nevis

Department: Technical Cooperation
Project Name: Food Processing Commercial Development Expert Dispatch Project (St. Kitts and Nevis)
Project Description: St. Kitts and Nevis relies mostly on foreign food imports due to the nation’s limited production of agricultural crops. Food processing can extend the shelf life of agricultural products, and value-added products can open new markets , attract customers and enhance the tourism industry. Aligning efficient food processing and innovative value-added products with the islands’ tourism development goals can assist in tourism development, thereby allowing locals to benefit from this industry.

Overall, this project will:
1.Increase production capacity of the food processing facility by optimizing current production lines; establish operations management and quality control protocols.
2.Provide training courses to local agro-processors to build up better fruit and vegetable processing knowledge and skills.
3.Introduce new types of raw materials and invent five new products.
4.Strengthen marketing strategy and provide associated training.
