T

HE RELATIONSHIP

between Factories

Corporation of Jamaica and

Nutrition Products Limited spans

over 29 years, making this company

one of FCJ’s longest serving clients.

Nutrition Products Limited is an

organisation that provides meal

solutions for over 1,000 educational

institutions across the island. The

company is charged with the

responsibility for the production and

distribution of nutritious snacks to

schools islandwide, under a national

nutrition programme.

SCHOOL-FEEDING PROGRAMME

Nutrition Products Limited

currently operates a school-feeding

programme, which comprises baked

products and sachets of milk or

juice.

The company, which operates

three plants in Westmorland, St

Mary, and Kingston, began its

relationship with FCJ in 1988 at its

Fort George Road, Annotto Bay, St

Mary location, where it rents 10,000

square feet of space.

“I have seen a lot of upgrades and

improvements to the infrastructure

of the facility, where they (FCJ)

have assisted us with the

construction of a kitchen and a

bathroom area,” Plant Manager

Gordon Davis said.

The company is now looking to

expand its product offerings.

The St Mary location, with 54

employees, operates on a shift

system to facilitate the timely

delivery of its products to the

various educational institutions its

serves across St Mary, Portland, and

parts of St Ann.

“FCJ has always been so co-

operative and timely in response to

our request that we have made,

whether it be for a leaking roof or a

breach in the fence or for additional

lights. They have always responded in

a very timely manner. I definitely

would recommend FCJ to anyone

who would like to do manufacturing

on a large scale just the way they have

dealt with us. I can assure anyone

that they will get great service for

whatever input they have,” Davis

said.
