Baron Foods makes first shipment to Cuba

Saint Lucia’s leading manufacturing company, Baron Foods (St. Lucia) Limited, has finally achieved its goal of exporting its world class products to Cuba.

The first shipment of condiments left Saint Lucia yesterday for the Spanish-speaking nation.

Baron Foods CEO Ronald Ramjattan  observed that Cuba is a new and emerging market with over 12 million inhabitants sharing a similar culture and food preference with the rest of the Caribbean.

” Baron Foods is creating an export path to Cuba where other St. Lucian companies can follow,” Ramjattan asserted.

Over the last five years Baron Foods (St. Lucia Limited) has attended several trade shows facilitated by Caribbean Export and the Saint Lucia Trade Export Promotion Agency (TEPA).

Within the last two years, the company  has been selected by TEPA and assisted by that organisation and the Cuban Embassy here in pursuing the goal of entering the Cuban market.

To date, Baron Foods has  secured a business relationship with TRD Caribe, which is one of the largest food and beverage Distributors in Cuba.


  1. Well done Baron Foods. Hope you are successful in that market and beyond.

  2. Right on! Now if you could also get your product to Canada, that would be great. Saves me the trip going down there.

  3. Baron foods mùust be very proud to help finance the Castro dictatorship. The “TRD” Shops that are basically set up to get the dollars exiles send to Cuba by selling essential products with a 230% markup.
    tiendas recaudadoras de divisas”, TRD’s are shops set up to benefit the regime (and its repressive system) by selling goods at extremely high prices beyond the means of the average Cuban (average pension $10 a month, average salary $25 a month) to support the regime by “recouping” remittances via high prices.

  4. Cubaverdad you sound just like the Chastanet when he took a bunch of “politically blind” people to the streets demonstrating against what he claimed was artificially high fuel prices (by the way it is still high to date). It would be a good thing to give a balanced view when you talk. Cuba is no paradise but show me any country – besides Cuba – and i will show you a country which is also no paradise.
