Saint Lucia To Launch ‘Banana Inspired Recipe Book’

Prime Minister Allen Chastanet has disclosed that Saint Lucia is developing a ‘Banana Inspired Recipe Book’, as part of an effort to brand local bananas as a “Premium” agricultural product.

“This recipe book will serve as a guide for alternative cooking uses of our bananas such as banana smoothies, banana bread and banana desserts among others,” Chastanet explained Monday on his official Facebook page.

He made the comments as cabinet concluded a meeting on the banana industry with high level officials from the Ministry of Agriculture.

The PM observed that the main focus of the meeting was to discuss the critical challenges which banana farmers face, the recommended solutions and some of the opportunities which  farmers should prepare themselves for.

“As we move forward, the branding of our banana as a “Premium” agricultural product is a major part of our strategic efforts,” Chastanet declared.
