UNCAPPED ‘very successful’ – Ramsay Ali

- Team for Belize to examine agro processing factory model

Fresh Packers: Sursattie Paul and her daughter

Senior executive member of the Guyana Manufacturing & Services Association (GMSA), Ramsay Ali has described Sunday’s UNCAPPED IV event staged at the Providence Stadium as “very successful,” asserting that the achievement was a manifestation of one of the accomplishments of the ongoing public/private sector discourses that have been ensuing for some time. In an informal interview with the Stabroek Business during the winding down phase of what turned out to be the largest of the four UNCAPPED events staged in less than a year, Ali said that UNCAPPED IV had attracted 75 agro-processors, the highest number so far and that between three and four thousand visitors had passed through the aisles to see and purchase a bewildering array of local products.

When asked to comment on what he believed was the standout feature of the event, Ali said that there could be no question that the “huge improvement in the range and quality of the products” as well as the “improved packaging and labelling” had lifted the Providence event above the level of its predecessors. That apart, he said that the organisers had been “more than a little heartened” by the number of new agro-processors who had put in an appearance at this year’s UNCAPPED event…..
