Jamaica Sun Traditional Jerk Seasoning grabs Gold

Jamaica Sun Traditional Jerk Seasoning recently won Gold at the 2010 Great Taste confirming its authentic quality within the category. It is made from an authentic blend of natural ingredients and formulated to give the flavour and aroma originally achieved by the Arawark Indians.

The original recipe was successfully revised over 18 months ago and was deemed to be top of its class, demonstrating the right balance of peppery spice and authentic home-style flavours.

Our Jamaica Sun BBQ range, which includes the Traditional Jerk seasoning, has consistently scored well amongst consumers at sampling occasions in key events like BBC Good Food Show and are widely used by leading Caribbean chefs and caterers.

With the BBQ occasion gradually growing from being just for summer to an all year event, which can be attributed to the increase in the interest for tropical food and drink, there are certainly great times to come for our Tropical Sun and Jamaica Sun BBQ ranges.

John Payne, Sales Director for Wanis says ‘‘We’ve found that year-on-year there has been a renewed interest in our BBQ ranges across key channels. This has led to increased sales in our BBQ range, with demand spread throughout the year and spearheaded by the quality of our Jerk BBQ Sauce and Traditional Jerk Seasoning. This award is recognition at the consumer level stemming from the growing sales we are seeing at trade level.’’

Adejare Adesanya, Marketing Manager at Wanis says “The authentic nature of our BBQ range is set to tropicalize every BBQ occasion and make it truly enjoyable.

The bright attractive colour of the packaging supports product stand out and visibility on shelf encouraging take up. A new label will be launched later this year bearing the latest award.

We plan to build on this by rolling out eye-catching POS materials across key trade locations as part of the visibility campaign to keep the product top of mind in store and ensure they are an essential part of every BBQ occasion.

In addition our Tropical Sun website offers a portal for interaction with the consumers and carries great recipe ideas which serve as a stimulus for product innovation. We have had impressive traction on the site with great comments about many of the recipes.”
