The Ministry of Industry, Commerce, Agriculture and Fisheries in collaboration with other local stakeholders in Jamaica has embarked on efforts to ensure that the country's food safety standards are compliant with those stipulated under the revised United States Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA). Critical to these efforts is the strengthening of institutional capacity within the Ministry, with the training of technical officers, including Rural Agricultural Development Authority (RADA) staff, in good agricultural and manufacturing practices (GAPs and GMPs), and Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points (HACCP).
The provision of technical and financial assistance to farmers and fresh produce exporters to meet FSMA requirements is also being undertaken.
Welcome to the official website of the Ministry of Industry, Commerce, Agriculture and Fisheries.
The Ministry of Industry, Commerce, Agriculture and Fisheries (MICAF) has been charged with the responsibility of driving the integration of the production of primary agricultural produce along all the stages of the supply chain through to value added and facilitating full commercialization of outputs of the agriculture, manufacturing, and service sectors.
We have, therefore, placed much energy and enthusiasm into the development of this website to provide timely information on the Ministry, our agencies and programmes.
