  • Reduction in Energy Costs/Consumption;
  • Penetrated New Export Markets;
  • Reduced Operational Costs and/or Wastage;


  • Anticipated Increase in Exports;
  • Increase in staff – 1;
  • Increase in revenue – Approx. US$400,000 in 2020;

  • Reduced Operational Costs and/or Wastage;


Fiberpol Inc. has been operating in Barbados for over thirty (30) years and specializes in the custom manufacturing of kitchen countertops and cabinetry for the construction, residential and hospitality industries.

The Issue:

Fiberpol Inc. sought to increase production capacity of its main product lines namely kitchen cabinets and other cabinetry to enable expansion into to new markets, as the company had reached a point of market saturation in Barbados. The company was also challenged with high costs and extensive amount of time needed to ship traditional card templates of its kitchen to export markets.

Assistance Received:

Fiberpol Inc. received a financial grant via the Direct Assistance Grants Scheme (DAGS) funded by the European Union under the 11th EDF Regional Private Sector Development Programme. The funds were used to acquire computer numerical control (CNC) equipment/technology to enable 3D manufacturing; digitize company processes; enhance productive capacity and improve health and safety of the workshop.

Immediate Impact/Outcomes:

Immediately after the purchase and implementation of the CNC equipment, Fiberpol Inc. saw a reduction in operational costs and wastage. The digital technology created digital models of the jobs that can be edited online, emailed, and read by the CNC equipment used in manufacturing. The digital template assisted Fiberpol to decrease job cost by reducing material input and cost of transporting physical templates via ocean or air. This has reduced the average job timeline by 2-3 weeks, thus lowering energy costs and consumption.

Templating and manufacturing are more accurate, less labour intensive and can be done remotely with less challenges. The cost per counter and wastage is reduced and the process of taking measurements on site and cutting the countertop shapes is now done digitally. As a result of these enhanced processes Fibrepol has been able to expand further into the export market and have seen export sales increase by 80%. The successful implementation of the DAGS project also enabled the creation of an additional job role of an Equipment Engineer.

Medium-term Results and Impact:

In the medium-term, revenue increased between January and November 2020. Also, the company’s productive capacity and efficiency was enhanced by 15% and the new machinery facilitated reduced wastage and lower cost, per counter (unit) in production.

The project also had a positive impact on the environment. Fiberpol Inc. equipment/machinery upgrade (CNC Technology), acquired through the DAGS, has completely digitised its production process, and eliminated the need for constructing kitchen models using cardboard. This action has significantly reduced the non-recyclable waste that the company generates and therefore, it has had a positive impact on the environment. In addition to St. Kitts and Nevis, the company is also now exporting to Dominica and the British Virgin Islands.

The COVID-19 pandemic caused a slowdown in business, as regional projects were delayed or cancelled, due to travel restrictions. This impacted the company’s sales and gross profits for 2020. However, the efficiency savings gained, through the new technology, have reduced the overall financial impact of COVID-19 on Fiberpol Inc.

“The Direct Assistance Grants Scheme (DAGS) has been exceptionally helpful in assisting Fiberpol’s process for going digital in its kitchen manufacturing facility. From initial application to final sign off, the process was well supported and structured with knowledgeable and helpful staff always ready to assist and endless resources to cover any questions. Fiberpol Inc. is now equipped to work on projects seamlessly in any Caribbean territory using cutting-edge digital CNC technology for templating, programming and manufacturing kitchens. We are very appreciative to the Caribbean Export Development Agency and European Union for all they are doing to assist businesses in the region.” Bill Emptage, Director

Cómo DAGS permitió a Dawson Trading aumentar el personal, las exportaciones y los ingresos/ventas


Dawson Trading Company Limited: www.easypickinsja.com,




Agro-processing and Distribution,


  • Product Development – 6 new (shelf stable) products;


  • Increase in staff – 6;
  • Increase in exports – 17%;
  • Impact on Sector (suppliers, etc.) – increased revenue;
  • Increase revenue/sales –20%;


Dawson Trading Company Limited (Dawson Trading) was established in 2013 by owner, Jordan Dawson. The company specializes in the growth, procurement, and exportation of traditional Jamaican fresh produce including mangoes, breadfruit, avocado, peppers, and yams, to overseas markets primarily Canada, USA, and the UK.

The Issue:

Dawson Trading sought to address several main concerns facing the Jamaican produce sector, namely: reducing spoilage; increasing volumes purchased from small and rural farmers; and accessing new markets. In addition, the company wanted to increase revenue; create new attractive and necessary product lines for overseas customers; keep workers employed for longer periods of time; and earn foreign exchange.

Assistance Received:

Dawson Trading’s received a financial grant via the Direct Grant Assistance Scheme (DAGS) in 2018 funded by the European Union under the 11th EDF Regional Private Sector Development Programme. With the grant Dawson Trading sought to develop a viable methodology to keep fresh fruit in its natural state for longer periods of time by processing/peeling, blast freezing and storing the product items in a frozen state. The project included the identification, acquisition, and installation of production equipment for the processing of fresh produce, the development of food safety – HACCP plan and recall program to meet HACCP certification. In addition, the project also included marketing and promotions including the creation of a website and suitable branding for the packaging and labelling of the products.

Immediate Impact/Outcomes:

The production equipment acquired, through the DAGS, has enabled Dawson Trading to create a new line of six different shelf stable flash frozen fruit products. This has allowed the company to increase the quantity of produce purchased from local farmers. Notably, these purchases now include bruised and below standard fruit, which would previously have been discarded. This action has, therefore, reduced wastage and increased revenue generated for Jamaican farmers.

The acquisition of machinery for processing fresh produce was central in producing a new product line of frozen fruits, for the export market. Frozen products are now exported to North America, Europe, and the Caribbean. It has also increased the volume of purchases, reduced spoilage, and increased revenues for suppliers, by purchasing below standard produce (with no effect on the final quality of the product) and higher volumes during peak bearing season.

In addition, the company developed a website and a logo. Training was carried out for the implementation of food safety standards for key staff members and major work was done on documentation and improvement of the facility towards HACCP certification.

Medium-term Results and Impact:

Over the medium-term, the DAGS project enabled Dawson Trading to increase staff by 6 employees, namely an administrative assistant, a driver, and 4 labourers. In 2020 the company’s exports increased by 17% and revenue/sales increased by 20%. Of this percentage 2% was from the flash frozen line. The project also significantly increased revenue for local farmers because they can now sell more volumes including bruised products.

The COVID-19 pandemic severely affected the export demand for fresh produce which were previously Dawson Trading’s primary export and the new product line provided considerable revenue to supplement the shortfall. Further, Dawson Trading’s increased purchase volumes from local farmers supplemented the farmers’ revenue shortfalls that occurred, due to shutdowns in the tourism sector (hotels).

“The Direct Assistance Grant Program (DAGS) through the Caribbean Export Development Agency, has been instrumental in helping to equip my company with the provisions needed to propel it into its next stage of growth. Primary drivers for this growth were the implementation of food safety systems and the tooling of our factory to further develop our line of Jamaican flash frozen produce. Without the DAGS project, the company’s survival would have been unlikely during the pandemic.” Jordan Dawson, Owner.

Un estudio de caso de DAGS sobre cómo Cummings Wood Products mejoró la eficiencia productiva


Cummings Wood Products; cwpgy.com,






  • Enhanced Productive Capacity and Efficiency – 7-8%;
  • Product Development – 4 new products;
  • Reduced Operational Costs/Wastage – 7-8%;


  • Increase in staff – 23% or 10 employees;
  • Increase in exports – 10% (2019);
  • Entry into new market – Jamaica;


Cummings Wood Products (CWP) founded by Andre Cummings (CEO) in 2008, produces and exports flooring and decking to the Caribbean. The company’s vision is to be the leading flooring company by enhancing beauty and value with its products and services.

The Issue:

CWP was challenged with high production costs due to the low production capacity of current machinery and low level of recovery from raw materials. The company also wanted to reduce the environmental impact of its production processes; offer quality products at an affordable price to consumers; create jobs and develop the economies of Guyana’s rural communities.

Assistance Received:

In 2018 CWP received a Direct Assistance Grant funded by the European Union under the 11th EDF Regional Private Sector Development Programme. The funds enabled Cummings Wood Products’ to implement a plan to increase the yield from raw material (hardwood) and lower the company’s production costs, through economies of scale. The project included the acquisition and installation of production machinery to make new hardwood product lines, and transform off-cuts, end trimmings, etc. into saleable hardwood products, to increase the percentage rate of gross timber resource inputted into the production system.

Immediate Impact/Outcomes:

The acquisition of new technologically advanced production equipment allowed CWP to aggressively pursue value-added development per Guyana’s National Log Export Policy, intended to curb the export of round logs in favour of downstream value-added products. Aggressive product development and innovation was completed to ensure all product dimensions satisfy buyers.

The company expanded product lines include ‘custom-built’ modular kitchen cabinets, standard and customised chest of drawers, framed and paneled doors and end matched flooring. The company also saw significant improvement in productivity performance, cost minimization and production yield output at all cost centers throughout the manufacturing plant.

Production and maintenance downtime, change-over (set-up) loss time, dropped, with better up-time and line availability at the machine lines. Factor and total productivity and surplus production yield performance were consistently achieved monthly at all cost centers, machine lines, and at the plant level. In addition, two members of the management staff benefitted from certified technical training overseas and were instrumental in disseminating formalized in-house training to lower-level staff.

Medium-term Results and Impact:

In the medium-term, the production machinery acquired by CWP through the DAGS increased the yield from raw materials by 20%. This reduced the demand for the quantity of trees needed and thereby reduced the environmental impact from production. In addition, promotion of lesser-known hardwood species is expected to reduce the likelihood of overharvesting popular species. Wastage from forest produce was also minimised by utilising wood pieces as short as 6 inches.

The new machinery also enhanced productive efficiency and reduced operational costs by 7-8%. The approximate increase in export sales induced by the project was 10% and the number of staff increased by 23% or 10 employees. The company also successfully entered the Jamaican market.

“The Direct Assistance Grant Scheme is absolutely relevant and indispensable for private sector development. Often times than not, most entrepreneurs / business owners in the private sector are cash strapped and are trapped in a cycle of repaying large sums of debt equity from insubstantial turnovers (profits), all in a dire effort to keep their businesses afloat. Moreover, most private sector businesses, particularly young start-ups, lack the financial resource to invest in critical capital acquisition, to take their businesses to the next tier of performance. Access to reimbursement funding from the Direct Assistance Scheme serves as a major help to suchlike business owners, and also to other entrepreneurs who would want to access such funding, even as they seek to develop strategic alliances with Caribbean Export to benefit from the other service platforms. Andre Cummings, CEO

Cómo Coffee Solutions Limited aumentó las ventas de exportación y los ingresos en 2019: un estudio de caso de DAGS


Coffee Solutions Limited, http://www.coffeesolute.com






  • Enhanced Productive Capacity and Efficiency
  • Product Enhancement (quality, packaging, etc.)
  • Renewable Energy and Energy Conservation


  • Increase in staff – 1 (part-time)
  • Increase in exports – 2019 – 10%
  • Increase revenue/sales – 2019 – 10%
  • Reduction in Energy Costs/Consumption – 110%
  • Sector Impact – increased profit margin for farmers
  • Reduced Operational Costs and/or Wastage – 20-30%


Coffee Solutions Limited (Coffee Solutions) was registered in 2006 and has become a global player in the roasting and exporting of Jamaican Blue Mountain Coffee. The company provides equipment and machinery for pulperies, coffee factories and shops and offers consultancy services in the post harvesting and cultivation of coffee to clients.

The Issue

Coffee Solutions needed to improve the storage of its coffee beans to ensure quality and consistency of the products for the export market and become more competitive. To achieve this Coffee Solutions set out to reduce energy costs, generate revenue and decrease its carbon footprint on the environment.

Assistance received

Coffee Solutions undertook the implementation of an energy efficient, cost cutting and quality improvement venture under the Direct Grant Assistance Scheme (DAGS) in 2018 funded by the European Union via the 11th EDF Regional Private Sector Development Programme. The funds were used to improve the company’s competitiveness, growth, and long-term sustainability. The project comprised the installation of a solar power system/photovoltaic renewable energy system to lower energy costs and reduce the company’s impact on the environment. The project also included the acquisition of a shipping or trucking container to be retrofitted as a green coffee beans storage facility, and the installation of a solar power system to provide temperature and humidity-controlled storage to improve the quality of green beans and to ensure more consistent finished products going to market.

Immediate Impact/Outcomes

After project implementation Coffee Solutions saw a 20% reduction in energy costs. The electricity bill was reduced from JMD25,000 to JMD5,000. Exports increased in 2019 by 10%; quality improvement were realized in the stored green beans, and more consistency was observed in the finished products. Members of staff gained knowledge on the efficient use of energy and control storage system.

Medium-term Results and Impact

In the medium-term Coffee Solutions saw a 15% increase in export sales and a 10% increase in revenue in 2019. The company was also able to retain its current employees, provide extended working hours for temporary employees and increased staff by 10% or 1 employee, because of the DAGS project. The installation of the new storage facility resulted in a 20-30% reduction in the cost of the company’s coffee beans; improvements in the quality of beans; and an increase in the length of time that the products can be stored.

Coffee Solutions also installed a photovoltaic energy system that generates an estimated 10% energy surplus which is sold into the national grid. The company now earns revenue through this system. The company has also seen a 110% reduction in energy costs/consumption because of the installation of the system.

The cost savings have enabled the company to restructure its pricing mechanism and offer small farmers lower prices for contract processing services. The coffee farmers in Jamaica, importantly, include women, who can now access more competitive rates for processing and thereby increase their profit margin.

In addition, the implementation of nine renewable energy system projects has reduced and, in a few cases, eliminated the use of energy generated from non-renewable sources. By using less non-renewable energy, the carbon footprints of small farmers in the industry have been equally reduced.

“The Direct Grant Assistance Scheme is impacting regional businesses in a positive manner. It allows companies to undertake project[s] three to five years in advance of the company’s realistic projection. The funding facility should continue to help Caribbean firms achieve their full export potential.” Basil Jones, Managing Director

Cómo Young Island Resort redujo costos y mejoró la prestación de servicios: un estudio de caso de DAGS


Young Island Resort


St. Vincent and the Grenadines



Product Development
Reduced Operational Costs/Wastage
Reduction in Energy Costs/Consumption

Increase in revenue/sales – 16%
Increase in staff – 4%
Increase in exports -5%
Decrease in operating expenses and/or wastage – 63%


The Young Island Resort is a fifty-two-year-old establishment with twenty-nine cottage-styled accommodations, located on a 12.6 acres private island in St. Vincent and the Grenadines.

The Issue

Young Island Resort needed to reduce the cost of doing business; modernise the Resort; and improve the delivery of its services. The Resort also wanted to increase website traffic and occupancy rates; and enhance their menu and pastry offerings to compete more effectively and become more viable as a business.

Assistance Received

Young Island Resort received a financial grant under the Direct Assistance Grants Scheme (DAGS) in 2018 funded by the European Union under the 11th EDF Regional Private Sector Development Programme.

The company undertook a multi-faceted and expansive project to improve and enhance the Resort’s product delivery, services, and aesthetics. Renewable energy measures including the purchase of an AC inverter, solar water heaters and low and low flow shower heads for all bathrooms were implemented, to reduce energy costs and carbon footprint. In addition, capacity building in the form of staff training, specifically in pastry and international cuisine; menu development and costing; product marketing and promotional materials production; and the acquisition of furnishings and service delivery software and hardware were also undertaken to increase customer satisfaction.

Immediate Impact

At the close of the DAGS project in 2018, the Resort reported that it had achieved its objectives in enhancing its facilities and service delivery. Greater energy efficiency was achieved because of the installation of AC inverters and the resort now utilises natural energy to operate. The Resort is also now able to monitor electricity cost to measure savings because of new solar water heaters. In addition, the installation of low flow shower heads resulted in less water wastage and positive guest feedback on the new fittings.

Ten (10) staff who were trained by Jennifer Lakhan-D’Souza- George Brown College, Canada, in pastry making, are now certified and new pastry items are currently on the menu. Also, chefs and accounts staff members (four females and six males) were trained in culinary areas of costing, menu development, production, and sanitization, by Kevin Mitchell- Culinary Institute of Charleston- South Carolina, USA.

The Resort has also produced a new promotional video, which is utilised in roadshows and travel and trade shows. Flyers and ten thousand (10,000) brochures were developed and are now available at the Resort’s reservation agencies in the UK, USA, and Canada. This promotional material has assisted the Resort in penetrating new markets and attracting more guests from the Caribbean, Europe, USA, and Canada.

The kitchen equipment purchased provides safe and healthy meals to guests, the additional laundry washers acquired have led to increased capacity and efficiency, and the acquisition of twelve (12) beds have increased customer satisfaction. The Resort has also implemented a smoother workflow in the housekeeping department which has improved service delivery to guests. In addition, new point of sale software and hardware have led to enhanced staff accountability and expedited kitchen orders, productivity has improved, and the inventory system has led to greater operating efficiencies.

At the close of the project, it was expected that the immediate gains realised by the company would further result in longer term outcomes and impact of increased exports of 5% and increased staff of 4%.

Medium-term Results and Impact

Over the medium-term, the Resort increased its revenue and sales (which included export sales) by 16%. Moreover, Young Island Resort has experienced cost savings, with a 63% reduction in its water bill from 2018-2019. The Resort began seeing an increase in business from January-March 2020, since implementation of the DAGS project. Non-resident business continues to thrive with repeat guests, which could be attributed to the new food items and menu presentation. Media coverage led to increased visibility for the Resort and customer interest in the new pastry items. The Resort also hired an additional pastry staff, however, due to the COVID-19 pandemic the staff was subsequently laid off.

“The Resort can only grow from strength to strength now, in terms of the momentum that we have started. And I must say…that the point-of-sale system…that sort of energized our bar and restaurant staff […] I am really, really, very happy and I certainly would endorse a DAGS at any time […] I speak positively about it to anyone […] you know, just saying thanks…” Bianca Porter, General Manager.

Chem Clean aborda la seguridad y aumenta las exportaciones durante el COVID-19

COVID-19 has been a pain for countless businesses worldwide, but for Chem Clean Limited the current pandemic caused by the extremely contagious novel coronavirus has led to an increased demand for products and growth in exports.

Nonetheless, Renee Zamore, Managing Director of the Trinidadian company, emphasized that any help given to Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (SMEs) to gain entry into export markets was not only welcomed but critical given the pandemic.

With countries combating COVID-19, and consumers stockpiling cleaning products, disinfectants and hand sanitizers, the situation definitely presents an opportunity for Chem Clean and other regional suppliers to meet the demand that is key to mitigating the spread of this virus.

The company, which started as a backyard operation in 1981, is now one of the Caribbean’s leading manufacturers of specialty cleaning and sanitizing chemicals. In fact, Chem Clean is popularly known for its consumer line which includes Lime A-Way Bathroom Cleaner, Zesty Disinfectants and HandSanW hand sanitizers. They also offer a wide range of products for the laundry, housekeeping, janitorial and industrial sectors.

Over the years, Chem Clean Limited has been focused on producing quality products and expanding its customer base beyond its homeland, Trinidad and Tobago.  The company has been working assiduously to meet this goal prior to COVID-19 and continues to do so now.

Chem Clean’s humble beginnings and its growth

“This business was started by my parents and another partner in 1981 when they saw an opportunity to utilise caustic soda to which they had easy access. It was really a matter of seizing an opportunity and from a very small backyard operation, the business soon grew from strength to strength,” the Managing Director said.  Today, Chem Clean employs 25 persons and has recognized brands under its belt.

Ms. Zamore recalled how Lime A-Way became the company’s flagship product.  “We manufactured for the international company, Ecolab Inc. for 12 years when import tariffs were very high and it made sense for Ecolab to have a local manufacturer for the region. When both parties dissolved the arrangement when heavy tariffs were lifted, we asked if we could trademark Lime A-Way and continue to manufacture it for the local market, they agreed. We have continued to manufacture this well-known brand for some 25 plus years now.”

She explained that while Trinidad and Tobago had been the company’s primary customer base, over the last eight years Chem Clean has been steadily increasing its exports within the region.  However, she lamented that gaining entry into export markets was “very challenging” and stressed that any assistance given “goes a long way to reducing those barriers.” 

Since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, naturally the demand for key products has significantly increased both locally and regionally. Overall, Ms. Zamore revealed that the company has seen an approximate increase of 10-15% in exports.

Direct Assistance Grant leads to increase capacity and more sales

Ms. Zamore disclosed that in 2012, Chem Clean Limited successfully applied to the Caribbean Export Development Agency for a Direct Assistance Grant and used it to “properly and professionally” implement three projects in 2013.  The company:

  1. Upgraded its Manufacturing Facility: “We had a new catwalk created for the mixing tank area, before this our catwalk was coming apart and would have soon become a health and safety risk.”
  2. Upgraded its Lab: “We outfitted our lab with cabinetry and lab equipment. Previously our lab was a makeshift table in the manufacturing area. With the upgrade, we are now able to carry out proper and professional research and development (R&D) and quality control checks.”
  3. Purchased a new mould: A new 650ml bottle mould was purchased to enhance the marketability of Chem Clean’s consumer products.  “Our flagship product, Lime A-Way Bathroom Cleaner, among other consumer products, got a well needed face lift and we were in a better position to compete on the international level. Sales of this product doubled after the new bottle,” she said, adding that a new look was once again needed.

The Direct Assistance Grant from Caribbean Export provided Chem Clean with the necessary support to upgrade its plant and boost capacity.  “In 2012, exports represented less than 5% of our revenue, last year (2019) that figure was up to 17%.”

Meeting the COVID-19 Demand

Now faced with increased demand and having to implement measures to protect the workplace against COVID-19, Chem Clean has made some changes to its operations. 

“It’s been extremely hectic manufacturing full-time to meet the demand. We’ve been receiving requests from other countries, and our local customer base has grown,” Ms. Zamore divulged. 

Given the infectious nature of COVID-19, employee safety was top priority at Chem Clean.  The Managing Director did not want staff to feel pressured or unsafe. “We had to make some decisions, gave the staff options and ask them if they wanted to work first,” she explained.

Then several changes were implemented to beef up safety in at the manufacturing company.  Employees were equipped with face masks. Hand washing stations were set up and workspaces were spread out to meet social distancing requirements. Public access to Chem Clean was also ceased and temperature checks are conducted on persons doing pick-ups.

Reiterating that due to COVID-19 the company has benefited from an approximate 10-15% increase in exports, Ms. Zamore acknowledged that the strategic decision taken in 2012 to upgrade the facility and boost production capacity was still bearing fruit today.

 â€œWith the funding from the Direct Assistance Grant Scheme, we were able to implement those three projects that we would not have otherwise been able to properly and professionally execute,” she said, while emphasizing that agencies such as Caribbean Export provide essential support to SMEs.

She added that Chem Clean also ensures its staff and management benefit from training and workshops offered by ExportTT, the Trinidad and Tobago Manufacturers’ Association (TTMA) and other organisations. 

As Caribbean Export prepares to offer further assistance to CARIFORUM SMEs amid the COVID-19 pandemic, regional businesses are being encouraged to prioritize activities and focus on business continuity.
