KINGSTON, Jamaica (JIS) — Prime Minister Andrew Holness has welcomed the launch of the Seprod Group's new $3-billion state-of-the-art grains mill, Jamaica Grain and Cereals Limited, which has created employment for 300 more Jamaicans.

Holness said he is pleased that the investment, which also represents a milestone in Jamaica's reindustrialisation, will assist with economic growth through import substitution. 

He thanked the Seprod Group for continuing to demonstrate confidence in Jamaica, assuring that the Government will continue to play its role in facilitating the private sector in creating growth.

The multigrain milling facility, which involves a partnership with Seaboard Corporation, will produce the company's new Gold Seal Flour brand and corn products. 

The Seprod Group manufactures and distributes edible oils and fats, dairy and fruit beverages, corn products, flour, sugar, baked snacks and other household consumer products.
