CaribDirect Multi-Media is pleased to announce the Caribbean Food and Drink Conference and Jus’ Caribbean Festival 2017, in association with Grace Foods UK.
As a follow-up to Caribbean Food and Drink Expo 2015 held at Windrush Square, Brixton in south London, the outdoor event has modified its market to appeal to a more British / European audience; essentially selling the Caribbean to Europe and has since changed its name to Jus’ Caribbean Festival. This is hoped will provide untold benefits to small to medium size Caribbean businesses wanting to access the UK market as well as Caribbean businesses in the Diaspora wanting to trade or invest in the Caribbean. The very best of the Caribbean in terms of its culture (food, drink, music, dance) and the many other characteristics that make the Caribbean unique including our love for laughter and comedy, will be showcased.
The collaboration between CaribDirect Multi-Media and Grace Foods UK is hailed by CaribDirect CEO David F. Roberts as “a perfect blend benefiting from CaribDirect Multi-Media’s growing online influence in the global Caribbean space and Grace Foods UK’s prominence in the global Caribbean food and drink market. This relationship is intended to create the largest and most relevant Caribbean food and drink event in the United Kingdom for one and all to enjoy.”
In recognition of the strength of the collaboration and the faith in its success, the events have been named Grace Foods Caribbean Food and Drink Conference and Grace Foods Jus’ Caribbean Festival. Grace Foods UK Head of Marketing Nyree Chambers says “we are delighted to be closely associated with an event that will showcase the very best of Caribbean culture, food and drink and highlight the opportunities for businesses wishing to access one of the most dynamic sectors of the UK’s buoyant food and drink market.”
Grace Foods Caribbean Food and Drink Conference will be held on Friday 18th August 2017 at Lambeth College, south London and the Grace Foods UK Jus’ Caribbean Festival will be held on Saturday 19th and Sunday 20th August 2017 at a popular south London park capable of accommodating 5000 people.
