Programme Overview

The Bahamas is no stranger to the growing cost of food, due to our reliance on food imports. According to the International Trade Administration The Bahamas imported nearly 90% of its food at an annual cost of about $1 billion in 2022. MSMEs in the agricultural and fisheries industries can address this growing cost but they have found themselves not being able to access the necessary land, boats and equipment; along with the lack of knowledge on the products that are of the greatest need in the market.
