CWA 2016 to get a ‘Taste of Eden’
Kamarsha Sylvester is the proprietor of Taste of Eden, an agro-processing business that sells teabags (various flavours), green seasoning and dried seasoning. ‘Taste of Eden’ will be one of ten youth entrepreneurial businesses that will be on display at the Caribbean Week of Agriculture being held in the Cayman Islands 24-28 October, 2016.
According to Kamarsha, the business aims to produce quality products at affordable prices.
“In order to have a competitive edge, as a growth strategy, Taste of Eden will cater to its customers’ needs by building a relationship with its customers and continue to be dependable,” she said.
The owner’s ultimate dream is to build a reputation resulting from top quality products and customer satisfaction.
She said she routinely does evaluation so that customers could indicate when their needs were not being met. According to her, Taste of Eden plans to become a major competition to businesses locally, regionally and internationally.
“Being a product of the Nature Isle, Taste of Eden takes the slogan “go green” very seriously,” shes said.
Products are made in Paix-Bouche, Dominica. Most of the raw materials are grown on a farm and marketed mainly via word of mouth (this includes meeting with hoteliers and supermarket owners).
In terms of relevance, Kamarsha believes that proper marketing is essential as well as ensuring that the products are of good quality.
In terms of sustainability, I plan on liaising with other farmers so that wherever my farm falls short, I can easily purchase from them. Also I will try to make expenditures as minimum as possible. This might mean importing things in larger quantities,” she said.
