Luxury category is primary target for new Jamaican brand
A new company specialising in classic Jamaican food has launched to the UK market with its sights set firmly on the fine food sector.
Marshall & Brown, which launched at the Jamaican High Commission in London at the beginning of the year, is aiming to fill what it says is a gap in the market for premium authentic Jamaican food and cooking ingredients.
As well as rum punch and artisan chocolates laced with Jamaican rum, the company will be producing two brands. Mama Brown’s rum cakes come in six flavours: banana, chocolate, coconut, key lime, pineapple, and golden original with walnuts (trade £5.95 per 112g unit, RRP £9.95).
The Jerk House is a collection of Jamaican sauces and seasonings such as barbecue, jerk, yellow scotch bonnet and a hot mustard, available in three sizes 148g (RRP £2.85), 312g (RRP £4.50), and 555g (RRP £4.50).
All products are available for wholesale from Artisan Food Club, The Fine Food Angel, BoroughBox and Route2.
