By BBN Staff: On November 17, Jamaica’s Minister of Industry, Karl Samuda successfully met with Minister of Trade and Commerce, Tracey Panton, in Guyana during the 43rd meeting of CARICOM’s Council for Trade and Development.

Following their meeting it was agreed that Belize would once again allow for Jamaican patties to be imported into the country from Jamaica.

Previously, Jamaican exporters were experiencing difficulties with exporting beef and poultry patties into Belize although a decision of the CARICOM Council for Trade and Development (COTED) gave Jamaica approval to export its patties to all CARICOM states.

Following the meeting, Jamaica’s Samuda told the media that he was pleased with the outcome of the talks as Belize remains an export market of interest to Jamaica.

“It’s a positive step that I am sure our patty manufacturers will welcome,” he was reported saying.

It is unclear when the signature patties will return to tummies in the jewel but arrangements are being worked out.
