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.
