Hon. J.C. Hutchinson (centre), Minister without Portfolio in the Ministry of Industry, Commerce, Agriculture and Fisheries, views cassava harvested from the Holland Primary School Garden in St. Elizabeth during an Eat Jamaican School Tour on November 15, 2019. Others from left are Rural Agricultural Development Authority Parish Agricultural Manager, Nathan Samuels, and Simone Doctor, Principal. The tour was one of several activities being held in celebration of Eat Jamaican Month organised by the Jamaica Agricultural Society, RADA and the Ministry and included a talk to the students by Minister Hutchinson who emphasised the importance and benefits of eating locally grown produce. The minister also encouraged the school to incorporate more local ingredients in its Breakfast Programme.

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.
