Jamaica's participation at SIAL Canada started yesterday April 30 and will end on May 2, 2019.

Carita Jamaica, Scotch Boyz, Linga Ya Farms, Caribbean Dreams, Tru Juice, Monymusk Plantation Rums and Home Choice are representing Jamaica at the event, which had over 15,000 buyers from 60 countries in attendance in 2018.
