THE NATION: Now in its 10th year, the Eat Jamaican Campaign stays the course

GARDEN FRESH: Olympian Brigitte Foster-Hylton among the stars endorsing the national initiative.

This past Monday, King's House played host to the launch of the Eat Jamaican Campaign's 10th anniversary series of activities, attended by several stakeholders in the agriculture industry and Dr. Jerome Thomas, representative of the United Nations's Food and Agricultural Organization (FAO) in Jamaica.

"Our vision is for a world free from hunger and malnutrition, where food and agriculture contribute to improving the living standards of all," Thomas said. "Achieving this vision at the national level would require significantly increasing production and consumption of locally produced agricultural products as is envisaged by the Eat Jamaican Campaign."
