Jamaica Broilers sings grain deal with shipping company UBC
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. ■
