Products are produced in Barbados using local ingredients. Items which are manufactured in Barbados, but made up of imported ingredients, do not qualify.
For example, did you know that we import all of the white (wheat) flour that you find on the supermarket shelves? There are delicious, local alternatives such as breadfruit and cassava flour which you can find in our Local Buyer’s Guide.
Ingredients are in fact locally grown and caught in Barbados.
For example, did you know that we import over 85% of the fish we eat in Barbados? That’s right! Much of the fish you see in the local market is actually imported. There are sustainable alternatives such as lionfish which is caught locally, which you can read more about on our Sustainable Seafood Guide.
