Ricardo Nuncio (left), managing director, Red Stripe, makes a point to cassava farmer Antonio Porter while Gillian Hyde, general manager, JN Small Business Loans, listens. All three were at the signing of a memorandum of understanding between Red Stripe and JN Small Business Loans (JNSBL) at Red Stripe on Thursday, May 3. The agreement allows farmers who are a part of the Red Stripe Project Grow Initiative — a project that involves a commitment to replace imported high maltose corn syrup by 2020 with 40 per cent cassava starch in its brewing process — to access funding from JNSBL.
