Frozen ready meals with true Caribbean flavour
Jamaica on Ice (JOI) is the brainchild of Caribbean culinary chef and food retailer, Mark Richards. His premier frozen Caribbean food range JOI came from a genuine desire to keep his beloved Granma’s diet fresh and lasting.
‘I would plan and cook weekly meals for my Grandma, but the food wouldn’t stay fresh for long enough – there was a lot of waste and the process became really time consuming. I then started to freeze her food and eventually it just became a thing. She began to tell her friends and soon enough I was supplying small frozen dishes to my Granma, her friends and other family members. It was at this point that I thought well why not do this on a commercial level and here we are today – Mark Richards, Founder, Jamaica on Ice
