Carita Jamaica Limited is the premier provider of fresh grown produce from Jamaica. As a 100% family-owned and operated company, our focus is delivering fresh produce to you. From farms throughout Jamaica, Carita is a year-round supplier of the very best fresh fruits and vegetables to the United States, Canada and the UK. Celebrating thirty years in business, this year Carita is expanding its product line beyond fresh produce to include frozen items, soups, and Jamaican natural teas, under the “Carita Premium” brand.
Rita Hilton, as Managing Director of Carita Jamaica Limited, this year has expanded its product line beyond fresh produce to include frozen items, soups, and Jamaican natural teas, under the “Carita Premium” brand.
“We’re trying to spread beyond the diaspora and ethnic markets, and that is why we are looking at new areas,” she said. We want to see first-hand what the customers’ needs are.” The positive vibe that’s attached worldwide to nearly all things Jamaican doesn’t hurt either. “Jamaica has such a tremendous brand,” Hilton said. “And Jamaica is so known for athletics, music, its food; the only way to go is up to capitalize on that platform. I think there’s a definite advantage to products emanating from Jamaica.”
The majority of Carita Jamaica’s business is with the United States, Canada, and the UK, though a greater export footprint across Europe is a prime objective. As well as boosting the company’s profile domestically through outreach within its home territory. “There’s a whole new world for us to expand into and we are very much looking forward to that,” Hilton said.
