CaribPR Wire, NEW YORK, NY, Fri. Sept. 2, 2011: Adam Borden knows a great food and beverage investment when he sees one. After all, his investment in the company that is now the global pioneer in açai products, is proof positive of that. Borden will be among the panelists of Invest Caribbean Montego Bay this Fall.
The October event is being presented by Hard Beat Communications’ CEO, Felicia Persaud in collaboration with the Montego Bay Chamber of Commerce, and is set for the Rose Hall convention center as part of the Chamber’s 14th annual expo that will be opened by Assistant Secretary General of the OAS, Ambassador Albert Ramdin.
Borden, the managing director of Bradmer Foods, LLC, says his company is constantly looking for the next food trend and food entrepreneur, wherever that may be and whatever they may be making.
“We’re excited to participate in Invest Caribbean because of the new foods and faces we’re likely to encounter. We look for entrepreneurs with a vision for greatness, a distinguished product and a compelling story,” said Borden, who has also invested in Adina Beverages, an organic & Fair Trade drink company; Blue Horizon Wild, one of the leading marketers of sustainably harvested seafood products; Charles Chocolates, a San Francisco boutique chocolatier; Organic To Go, a West Coast organic catering and retail operation.
Under the leadership of Persaud, the Caribbean region is being recast as an active entrepreneurial zone that is beyond sun, sand and sea.
On the heels of the very successful inaugural Invest Caribbean Forum held in New York City in June 2011, which drew an impressive array of speakers and a large audience, Persaud has announced the Montego Bay, Jamaica event, the first foray into the Caribbean region.
“What our efforts are proving is that there is a wealth of investor interest and a treasure trove of business opportunities in the Caribbean just waiting to be unlocked,” noted Persaud, the architect of the series.
Invest Caribbean recently concluded a successful forum with the Caribbean Tourism Organization during Caribbean Week in New York, June 9, 2011 featuring Goldman Sachs’ W. Dave Dowrich, Spackman Capital CEO, Martin Mohabeer and CEO of the Brilla Group, David Brillembourg.
