The Jamaica Cultural Development Corporation (JCDC) has extended its expression of appreciation to J Wray & Nephew (JWN) Limited for its role in culinary development.

The recognition, by way of an award, was among several presented to persons and institutions making meaningful contributions to the sector by the JCDC, at its 55th Anniversary Culinary Expo at Jamaica Pegasus hotel in St Andrew, recently.

The JWN trains personnel for the culinary sector at its JWN Academy on Dominica Drive in New Kingston, and provides additional support for the JCDC's Culinary Expo by way of sponsorship.

“We are indeed grateful that our efforts are contributing towards strengthening tourism in general and helping to shape the emerging gastronomic tourism market, particularly in Jamaica,” said JWN's chairman, Clement Lawrence. “We hold firm the view that investment in human capital is of utmost importance to nation building, hence our association with the JCDC in highlighting the works of high-achieving professionals within the industry.”

Tourism Minister Edmund Bartlett highlighted the spin-offs from enhancing the skills of persons operating in the field to grow the profession.

“We want to train and we want to build the professionalism within our culinary profession and for us in tourism,” he said. “We have recognised too that we must elevate the professional pathway as they are among the highest paid in the country.”
