Rainforest to export live J’can lobsters to Asia

Lobster-Processing

RAINFOREST Seafoods will begin exporting live Jamaican lobsters to Asian markets by July. Markets are to include China, Japan and South Korea.

The company, which has been incrementally expanding its product line over the years, is now in the process of constructing a $100-million lobster facility at its plant in Montego Bay to accommodate the 250,000 pounds of lobster it plans to export this year.

What’s more, the new venture will see an additional 20 people employed to manage plant operations and should create a large stimulus for the fishing communities on the south coast.
