Seprod Drops Case For Evaporated Milk, But Ready For Condensed Market

Jamaica need only prove that it can supply three-quarters of the market for condensed and evaporated to gain protection for manufacturers, but a top dairy producer, Seprod Limited, says it already has the capacity to serve 100 per cent of the Caribbean market for one of those commodities.

Last week, the Caricom Council for Trade and Economic Development (COTED) agreed to impose tariffs on condensed and evaporated milk imported from outside the trading bloc, but only if Jamaica could prove its claim that it had the capacity to supply 75 per cent of the market.
