Agrotop meets with Bahamas minister of agriculture to discuss poultry initiatives
Agrotop Business Development Manager Stanley Kaye met with the Bahamas’ Minister of Agriculture, Marine Resources and Family Island Affairs the Hon. Clay Sweeting to discuss the possibility of increasing domestic production of poultry in the Bahamas. This falls in line with the government’s mandate for food security in the country.
They met during Food, Agriculture and Livelihoods Week, which took place at World Expo 2020 in Dubai, in which the inaugural Food For Future Summit was held. Minister Sweeting, a guest speaker and panelist, led a delegation to the summit.
Kaye, who has vast knowledge in developing integrated poultry production projects in many countries, said Agrotop had access to the latest technologies including artificial intelligence and big data, which improve sustainability and quality of production. The parties agreed that Agrotop should conduct further research to develop initiatives for the Bahamas.
Kaye remarked that the covid epidemic over the past two years had caused massive global supply chain disruption, from shipping to production. Island economies around the world were scrambling to increase their domestic production of food products, particularly poultry meat, to improve food security and safety, he said.
“Agrotop is working on a number of similar projects in different areas of the globe with this in mind,” he added.
