ACB Bakery

The Bakery came into existence as a result of Rev. Taylor’s brainstorm to establish an economic project that would assist the members of the community of the Arcadia Circuit to benefit and become more economically independent. This decision was made after contacting Bank of Nova Scotia Jamaica Ltd. (BNS) who readily agreed to be our partners. BNS agreed to provide the funds necessary for the acquisition of major equipments to be utilized by the bakery. We also received assistance from Grace Kennedy and Company Ltd., who contributed raw materials for the bakery.

Production in the bakery began in September, after our commitment to erect a building at the Bath Church along with a committee of members who provided oversight until the project was established. The partnership between the business sector and the church in selected areas is one we believe should be replicated throughout Jamaica.
