THE Jamaica Broilers Group (JBG) is a benchmark for how other local companies can operate at international standards, according to Dennis Chung, chief executive of the Private Sector Organisation of Jamaica (PSOJ).

"I am so impressed with the company which runs a first-class operation, where the work environment is a lifestyle, because of the company's attention to the welfare of staff and the setting in which they work," Chung said, according to a recent news release.

His comments followed a tour of the Group's Best Dressed Further Processing Plant, Best Dressed Chicken Processing Plant and Co-generation Plant at Spring Village, St Catherine.

He said that with a very high local input of about 90 per cent in some of its product lines, Jamaica Broilers has proven that more organic growth in Jamaica from local entrepreneurs should be encouraged instead of putting the emphasis on seeking foreign direct investments.

"JBG is showing Jamaica and the world that it can grow its brands through the setting up of subsidiaries in Haiti and the United States, from which the organisation can export to other parts of the world. In addition, the company has remained over the years the major economic and income driver through employment in St Catherine," Chung said.
