As we enter into an expanded phase of marketing programs, ECTAD is looking for partners, supporters, donors and investors to partner with us in our quest to provide sustained profitable markets for our small farmers.
We aim to expand production and marketing of core selected crops in St Vincent & the Grenadines, Suriname, Guyana Jamaica, Dominica and St. Lucia.
These first phase crops include dasheen/tarro, eddoes, sweet potatoes, yams, ginger, hot peppers, turmeric and plantains. We are working with partners to strengthen our UK and France market outlets.
We are also seeking the opportunity to gain access to funding for the installation a facility for receiving, washing, packaging, storage and distribution of roots and tubers, and extended this process to roots and tubers (vacuum packaging and frozen cassava pieces, cassava, dasheen and sweet potato fries) etc.
