In celebration of National Manufacturers’ Month 2023, the Jamaica Manufacturers and Exporters Association (JMEA), in a coordinated effort with five of its member companies, opened its doors to 80 high school and tertiary students to tour their facilities throughout October. The tours were part of a comprehensive effort to inspire the next generation of manufacturers by showcasing the outstanding opportunities and current realities of high-tech manufacturing careers.
The tours exposed students to a wide spectrum of industry-specific companies, encompassing sectors such as food and beverage, clothing and textiles, and construction. The participating companies included Caribbean Cement Company Limited, Designs by Marc, Trade Winds Citrus Limited, and Caribbean Producers Jamaica (CPJ) Juice Plant. The Business Social has the highlights.
