I attended the first Caribbean Food and Drink Conference 2017 organised by CaribDirect Multi-Media and found it to be quite interesting. There were a number of highly experienced speakers from diverse disciplines some local and others from the Caribbean both within the food and beverage sector and from general business such as trade mark and patent law. The Pitch The Panel section, chaired by celebrity chef Levi Roots was particularly interesting as I was able to direct questions to Levi about how my product could complement to food industry. I applaud CaribDirect Multi-Media for this much needed initiative and would recommend industry leaders to participate and support the event in any way possible.

I believe that the Caribbean Food and Drink Conference in 2017 was an outstanding event. I particularly enjoyed the event for a number of reasons:
1. It assisted in raising the profile of Caribbean Food & Drink;
2. It facilitated the coming together of key individuals who have a keen interest in these food and drinks;
3. It enabled all those in attendance to sample some of the food and drinks at the event.
I will have no reservations in recommending this event to colleagues and friends.

“My attendance at the Caribbean Food and Drink Conference last year 2017 was made possible on behalf of the High Commission for St. Vincent and the Grenadines. It was one of the most inspirational and dynamic event that I have attended. The plethora of presentations on Caribbean foods and drinks were indicative of a balance on healthy foods and drinks made by some of the best in their industry. A well organised and executed event. Congratulations to Mr. David Roberts, his wife Carol and the team at the Caribbean Food and Drinks Conference.”
