Caribbean Export has selected Grenadines Gold to showcase its products and engage in business-to-business negotiations at Hub Camara Santo Domingo.
Grenadines Gold, headed by entrepreneur Lavern King was the only Vincentian company participating in this year’s expo which also featured businesses from Suriname, Belize, and Jamaica.
Hub Camara is the largest multi-sectorial commercial exhibition in the Caribbean, the first in the Dominican Republic developed under the business-to-business (B2B) format.
The annual event is the ideal space for companies to exhibit their products and services and expand their lines of business, press release said.
Grenadines Gold describes itself as an authentic local sea moss business that focuses on the export market.
It offers a variety of high-quality products using sea moss, including sun-dried raw sea moss, sea moss wine, shower gel, handmade soaps, and sea salt.
During the expo, King capitalised on the opportunity to engage the Minister of Industry, Trade, and Small and Medium size Enterprises, Ito Bisono, on export matters and offered him a few authentic SVG products.
She also engaged the Mayor of Santo Domingo City, Carolina Mejia who was particularly intrigued by the sea moss shower gel.
Commenting on the experience, King said: “I am grateful to Carib Expo for this opportunity and I look forward to continuing to work with the agency to increase the distribution territories for our products further. I was happy to represent not just my business but also SVG and to be the standard-bearer for sea moss businesses on the island.”
Hub Camara commenced on Tuesday and ends today (Thursday).
