“Many Caribbean products available in the UK have been manufactured here and adapted for the so-called British palette,” says Dean Fosbury, director, Calypso Imports. “Eaton’s are made in Jamaica, by a Jamaican family (our family), and offer an authentic Caribbean flavour. They’ve proved extremely popular among grocers that have trialed them and we expect significant interest from this sector, not least because the range will not be found in supermarkets.”
Eaton’s is the brand for the sauces, marinades, chutneys and jams created and manufactured by family run business King Pepper Ltd at its factory in Falmouth, Jamaica.
Calypso Imports is the sole UK distributor for the Eaton’s brand of Jamaican and West Indian products from King Pepper Ltd. It is a family-run business founded in 2007 by Dean Fosbury and his Jamaican father-in-law Richard Kong.
The UK office of Calypso Imports is in Northampton, and the company operates UK-wide through its website www.calypsoimports.co.uk.
