Jamaica set to assist certification of Guyana's food exports to the US

Jamaica National Association for Accreditation, which operates to the United States Food and Drugs Administration standards, is offering to certify Guyana's laboratories for food exports to the US.

Minister of Industry, Investment, and Commerce Aubyn Hill says Jamaica is testing Guyana's rice and other food exports.

JANAAC has accredited four Guyanese agencies and accredits laboratories along with other institutions to allow them to export.

Mr Hill says Jamaica, with its experience in logistics, could be an asset for Guyana.

He says there are also opportunities to twin Guyana's eco-tourism with Jamaica's sea, sun, and beach offerings.

A delegation from JAMPRO and 38 business executives from 22 companies in Jamaica travelled to Guyana for talks with government and private sector organisations.
