Jamaica lacked a gourmet popsicle company that uses local fresh seasonal organic fruits and vegetables to make delicious frozen treats. As a single mother with a career in education as a travelling officer, observation was my strongest trait. Within the institutions I visited my observation of children indulging in sugary drinks and treats, while our countryside was loaded with fruit trees and vegetables many times going to waste. While, the products that target children were mostly packed with sugar or of no nutritional value. I was resolved to bringing a better product to the market not just for my child but for everyone to enjoy.
I became more encouraged to produce a healthier product when my research led me to discover; these figures released by non-government organizations and the ministry of health in Jamaica (2012), showed that 20% of children aged 3 to 4 years old are obese, over 10000 Jamaican children under age 15 are suffering from diabetes, and over 220000 or 13.6% of the population between 15-74 years old are currently living with the disease. With much enthusiasm, we researched and developed a product aimed at both creating healthy options and saving the fruits from wastage, while providing employment for many Jamaicans.
What’s Happening Nowdays
Today we have seen our research and dreams produce the products that change the way we look at snacks and frozen treats. We are offering our energy smart carts for franchise and for events across the island to create employment. We have increased the employment of farmers in order to supply the demand for our wonderful gourmet treats. We cater weddings, birthday parties, anniversaries and special business events. You think of it and we can cater it. We have also done charity events.
Why We are
Located in Central Manchester, LiqyLiqy is a must stop for a wonderful frozen, savory healthy treat. LiqyLiqy fruit bars are the perfect treat on a hot day and a perfect snack for the parent who wants a healthy treat for their children. With unique flavors like mango, passion fruit, star fruit, carrot and jackfruit are distinctive frozen treats. Our ingredients are fresh and locally grown whenever possible.
We strive to be different not just in the impact we have on our economy by supporting our local farmers and selling and producing our products in a way that minimizes our carbon footprint, but also we strive to provide a means of employment to single moms and students who wish to pursue their dreams and support their families. So, our commitment is not only to giving parents a healthy alternative to sweet snacks but to also provide another source of income for many families.
We are striving to have boutique shops selling our products and growing to become recognized as the number one gourmet manufacturer of frozen treats in Jamaica, the Caribbean and to launch in North America.
The Bottom Line
We strive to hold a significant production power in the area of health treats and impact the way parents view their children’s health. We aim to reduce unemployment among single mothers which in turn will increase the number of students who make it into college and return to society to create more employment. We will become the cycle that ends a cycle.
