Finance Minister Audley Shaw and a team from his ministry and the Private Sector Organisation of Jamaica (PSOJ) yesterday toured Rainforest Seafoods’ 30,000 square-foot processing plant at Slipe Road in Kingston, where they received a first-hand look at the operations of the Caribbean’s largest supplier of premium quality seafood.
The team included minister of state Rudyard Spencer, PSOJ President PB Scott, and PSOJ Chief Executive Officer Dennis Chung.
The state-of-the-art, climate-controlled processing plant is HACCP-certified and has the capability of producing value-added products to include breading, battering, brining, cooking, pickling, portioning and smoking.
HACCP (Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point) is a food-safety system that helps food business operators look at how they handle food. The system utilises procedures to make sure the food produced is safe to eat.
