GraceKennedy Limited will sign London Olympic 110-metre bronze medallist Hansle Parchment as a Brand Ambassador.
The signing will take place on Friday at the company’s headquarters in Kingston.
The decision came 10 months after the 22-year-old University of West Indies student decided to go professional.
Parchment created history at the 2012 London Olympics when he won Jamaica's first Olympic medal in the 110-metre hurdles event.
He clocked a national record 13.12 seconds to win the bronze medal behind Americans Aries Merritt and Jason Richardson.
Parchment has since lowered the national mark to 13.05 seconds.
That achievement came on June 1 when he won the 110-metre hurdles at the Diamond League meeting in Eugene, Oregon.
