RED Stripe will be employing 30 more people as it prepares to resume its export of the world-famous lager beer to the United States next month, and plans to employ another 300 when it completes a major upgrade of its brewery on Spanish Town Road in Kingston.
Managing Director Ricardo Nuncio told Cabinet ministers Audley Shaw and Karl Samuda, who toured the Spanish Town Road brewery with a host of press personnel yesterday, that the company — a subsidiary of Dutch brewing company Heineken International — would resume brewing for the foreign market in mid-August.
“We should be ready to start shipping the product to the US market as of the first week of September. That is now a reality. It is going to happen in the first week of September,” Nuncio told his guests during lunch in the company’s recreational room, which followed the tour.
