Grace Foods supports Jus’ Caribbean Festival 2017

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.
