Screen Shot 2013-02-04 at 12.13.51 PM

Some time ago, we posted a list of more than 100 items made in Jamaica.  And you asked for some brands.  We have some for you today!

Flipping through the pages of the Made in Jamaica Catalogue, it was interesting to note that many of the local brands are produced all over the island and not just in Kingston. In many cases, local brands utilize local fresh produce and even our water from springs!  In some cases, local brands are designed for specific health purposes.  And of course, we are proud that many of these local brands are award winning – globally and locally.

Here are 50 common food and beverage brands you’ll find in the supermarket.  This is by no means the entire inventory of locally made brands.  However, you’ll see it is quite easy to make a meal – breakfast, snack, lunch or dinner plus a beverage – with only items that are ‘made in Jamaica’.
