BMEX delights

The Poinsettia room at the Lloyd Erskine Sandiford Centre has been transformed into one massive food court for BMEX 2016.

And today patrons made full use of the opportunity to sample many local delights.DSC_1566

On offer was a wide variety of treats, of both the sweet and savoury varieties, including sugarcakes, nutcakes, Bajan fruit drinks and breadfruit wedges.

This year, the Barbados Agricultural Development and Marketing Corporation, BADMC, has also mounted an impressive display of locally-produced products available under the recently launched Carmeta’s brand – from wines to chocolates, jams and jellies to Bajan conkies and seasonings.

President of the Barbados Agricultural Society James Paul and the visiting Minister of Agriculture from St Vincent and the Grenadines, Saboto Caesar, were among the crowd, so too the “orange” alien.
