UK’s number one supplier of Caribbean food and drink goes for gold at the Commonwealth Games

  • Grace Foods UK backs Jamaican Commonwealth Games team by sponsoring food and drink at Jamaica House, a five-day pop-up event in Birmingham to celebrate the Games
  • Grace celebrated 100th anniversary with launch of special-edition gold bottles of Grace Jerk BBQ Sauce and Dunn’s River Jamaican Jerk Seasoning

The UK’s number one supplier of Caribbean food and drink* is throwing its full support behind the Jamaican team for the Commonwealth Games that start this week.

Grace Foods UK, a division of the international GraceKennedy group headquartered in Kingston, Jamaica which celebrates its 100th anniversary this year, is one of the sponsors of Jamaica House, a five-day consumer-focused pop-up event in the Glee Club in Birmingham’s city centre, which is organised by the Jamaica Tourist Board and Ministry of Culture, Gender, Entertainment and Sport. 

Grace Foods UK will be supplying its authentic range of delicious food and drink products and ingredients for the five-day event that will not only celebrate the Jamaican athletes’ participation in the event, but will also be marking the 60th anniversary of Jamaican independence, which falls on 6 August. 

Representatives from Grace will also be at Jamaica House, cheering on the Jamaican team. Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce, two-time Olympic champion and a five-time world champion, is a brand ambassador for Grace Kennedy.

Jamaica House will highlight the best of Jamaican culture, music and cuisine for fans of Jamaica and sporting enthusiasts.

Over the five days at Jamaica House, guests will be able to watch the Commonwealth Games sporting action live on giant screens as Jamaica goes for gold on the track, while savouring cocktails and beer, as well as tucking into some authentically cooked jerk chicken, made with Grace’s legendary jerk barbecue sauces and seasonings, and other Caribbean food and drink favourites over the five days. Jamaican artists will also be performing the best of reggae, dancehall, gospel and comedy.

There will be live races from the Games and nightly entertainment from noon to midnight each day.

Vandu Patel, Marketing Manager for Grace Foods UK, says:

“It’s a true honour to be at Jamaica House giving our support to the Jamaican Commonwealth Games team. And we are thrilled to be able to provide our wide range of Caribbean food and drink to Jamaica House for the five-day event.

“2022 has been a big year for Grace, which celebrates 100 years since its very beginnings, and we have been celebrating this throughout the year, including launching 100th-anniversary special-edition gold bottles of Grace Jerk BBQ Sauce and Dunn’s River Jamaican Jerk Seasoning”.

“And with 60 years of Jamaican independence to celebrate, 2022 is a big year for Grace and Jamaica!”

All of Grace Foods UK’s market-leading products can be found in the Caribbean aisle of all supermarkets and convenience stores nationwide.
