Plant Quarantine Produce Inspection


Plant Quarantine Produce Inspection (PQPI) is Jamaica’s first line of defence against the introduction of exotic pests and diseases. This Unit is mandated to ensure that only the highest quality, pest free cut flowers and fresh produce are exported from and imported into the island.

The Unit functions under the legal framework of the Agricultural Produce Act 1926 and the Plants (Quarantine) Act, 1993. The Unit has its head office at 193 Old Hope Road, which serves as the overall administrative office for the two export complexes, one at the Norman Manley International Airport and the other at the Sangster International Airport. The PQPI Unit is headed by the Chief Plant Quarantine/Produce Inspector, with support staff consisting of: two Senior Plant Quarantine/Produce Inspector, two Export Complex Managers, and other staff members.

The Ministry

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.
