TCI’s government is promoting organic agriculture, eco-tourism and introducing agriculture to the school curriculum – all innovations to be applauded. One company even has ambitions to sell tea to China! Organic agriculture and food are being seen as key to solving a recent rapid rise in health problems.
These were all subjects of discussion during a meeting between TCI’s Director of Agriculture Wilhemina Kissoonsingh and Milan Jezic von Gesseneck during his mission to TCI.
Milan Jezic von Gesseneck had the opportunity to visit Courtney Missick’s Organic Farm and the Caicos Tea Company which started up in 2016. The company is known on the local market for its high quality products and attractive packaging. Its plan is to cover 100 per cent of the TCI market and export – even to China!
