Jamaican Minister of Agriculture Visits Golden Krust Plant
Pearnel Charles Receives Tour of our Bronx Patty Plant & Bakery
Golden Krust had the profound honor to host Pearnel Charles, the Jamaican Minister of Agriculture and Fisheries, at our Bronx based patty plant and bakery last week. A part of his “Food Security: The Jamaican Perspective” tour, the administrator and a group of prominent guests toured several locations in the New York City area to promote investment opportunities and provide an opportunity for Charles to meet contacts at importing companies.
Golden Krust, whose origins begin in Jamaica, still uses many ingredients that come from Jamaica to this day, including scotch bonnet peppers. The tour of the facility allowed guests to see the creation of our Jerk chicken patties from start to finish. From seeing the chicken cut, to the application of jerk seasoning, to the patties being filled, sealed, and cooked, our guests had the best seat in the house. The Minister also had the opportunity to enjoy a patty fresh off the line with Omar Hawthorne, Director of Franchise Development & Community Affairs, and son of Golden Krust founder, Lowell Hawthorne.
