Will the Caribbean soon be home to a new coffee production hub?
St. Vincent and the Grenadines is set to see significant progress in the development of a modern coffee industry next year, according to Agriculture Minister Saboto Caesar.
Caesar said a coffee nursery had already been established at St. Vincent’s Orange Hill Agricultural Station, and that professionals from South America were currently in the state and doing some preliminary feasibility work on coffee production.
The Inter-American Institute for Cooperation on Agriculture is also providing support to the initiative to develop St. Vincent’s coffee industry.
