JM: Supporting small farmers to induce further growth of the cannabis industry

Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Zimmer and Company T'Shura Gibbs is giving the company's commitment to sponsor 200 local farmers to attend the CanEx Jamaica 2019 Conference and Expo to be held from September 26-28 at the Montego Bay Convention centre.

“Last year we paid for 200 farmers to attend CanEx, as the intention is not to import products, we want Jamaican products; we want to distribute those products globally. This year we are also paying for 200 farmers from the ganja association to attend CanEx,” Gibbs said at the launch of the conference and expo on Wednesday, September 4 in Kingston.

As a means of appealing to these small farmers to attend, Gibbs noted that the conference promises to be a wonderful learning experience for them, which will also feature a free workshop, where they can come and be educated.
