Jamaica Broilers sings grain deal with shipping company UBC

Staff Writer |
Large poultry producers Jamaica Broilers Group (JBG), signed a three-year agreement earlier this month with shipping company United Bulk Carriers (UBC) to supply grain to its operations in Jamaica and Haiti.

The two companies signed the charter agreement on February 7 in Kingston. Executives of the poultry company say the grain includes mainly corn and soybean meal, Jamaica Gleaner reported.

“JBG and UBC have enjoyed a long-standing partnership spanning approximately 20 years, and this agreement signals a commitment to continue the relationship. This is a three-year agreement, and previous agreements have had similar three -year tenors,” explained Christopher Levy, president and CEO of Jamaica Broilers, in a response to Financial Gleaner queries.

UBC, known as a versatile carrier fleet, operates two dozen ships around the world and is a member of the larger Hartmann group.

The volumes of grains to be supplied were not disclosed nor the size of the contract.
