ST MARY, JAMAICA — Jamaica Producers (JP) Group in commemoration of its 90th anniversary which it celebrates in 2019, has announced that it will supply locally grown green bananas to public educational institutions under a new national feeding programme. The bananas will be sold at $5 per pound and will be supported by the JP St Mary's brand.
For JP, the year-long $50 million initiative, dubbed “The Heritage Project…Growing Goodness Together”, will see green bananas supplied in the first phase to schools, with a plan to extend the offer to health care facilities and registered charities. The arrangement will see one million pounds of locally grown green bananas channeled into schools as a part of their breakfast and lunch programmes at a 75 percent discount relative to market prices.
