(Trinidad and Tobago Newsday) Agricultural entrepreneurs are hopeful of attracting more interest, and investment, in there products coming out of last weekend’s Agri-Investment Forum and Expo.

Several exhibitors who had booths at the Queen’s Park Savannah, Port of Spain on Sunday are on board with CARICOM’s plan to reduce the food import bill by 25 per cent by 2025.

Regina King, founder and CEO of King’s Speciality, said, “Just seeing all these people coming out to see what TT and the Caribbean has to offer, generally enjoying, tasting, hearing them say they never knew TT had this amount of creativity – that we don’t lack talent – that was the greatest part of it.”

King has been involved in producing aromatic liqueurs made from local vegetables, spices and fruits, influenced by her mother and grandmother.

“This has been such a wonderful experience,” she said.
