Entornointeligente.com / Jamaica can now export pineapples commercially to Barbados. Sanniel Wilson Graham, Chief Plant Quarantine/Produce Inspector, says the development, which took effect on October 29, is part of Jamaica’s thrust to expand exports to improve the country’s earnings from the agricultural sector. Mrs Wilson Graham says it follows new market access opportunities in the Cayman Islands and the United Kingdom. Interested persons must be registered with the Ministry of Agriculture and Fisheries’ Plant Quarantine/Produce Inspection Branch and adhere to the export protocols. In addition, exporters who want to send pineapples to Barbados must obtain an import permit from the Plant Quarantine Division of the Ministry of Agriculture and Food Security in Barbados.
