UPDATE: Rainforest Seafoods SVG is still on track for its projected September 2021 opening, despite challenges posed by the global covid-19 pandemic and the recent explosive volcanic eruption.Located in Calliaqua, this $10 million facility will be the largest to process seafood locally – starting with 50 employees, and eventually increasing to 150 over time.

Rainforest Seafoods SVG will aim to purchase $20 million of seafood annually from Vincentian fisherfolk; and get the ball rolling with live lobster exports to North American, European, and Asian markets. Additionally, Rainforest Seafoods will support capacity building among local artisanal fisherfolk; with our Government providing support (boats, fishing equipment) to enable fisherfolk to take advantage of new markets for their produce.#InvestInSVG#AgroProcessing#SVGeruption2021#InThisTogether
