Approximately nine million dollars will be invested here for the establishment of a Fish Processing Plant at Calliaqua.

To facilitate this process, an agreement was signed on Wednesday 10th, April, 2019, by the Government of Saint Vincent and the Grenadines and the Rainforest Seafoods company at the VIP Lounge at the Argyle International Airport.

Rainforest Seafoods, headquartered in Jamaica, is the Caribbean’s largest processor and supplier of premium quality seafood.
