8f72ee2a-965b-4293-bca1-190934253b4bPRESS RELEASE – Saint Lucia’s leading manufacturing company, Baron Foods Limited, has blazed a new trail with its products into Réunion Island in the Indian Ocean.

On Thursday, February 18, 2016, Baron Foods Limited shipped 2,200 cartons of the company’s award winning sauces and condiments to the French overseas department, which has a population of about one million persons.

The locally-based company has said that besides Réunion, one of its  target markets for this year will be other Islands in the Indian Ocean.

Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Baron Foods Limited, Mr. Ronald Ramjattan, has recalled that his firm began negotiations in December, 2015, with a Réunion company by the name of I.M.A.

“Entry into this market was unchallenging as we met all of the requirements,” Mr. Ramjattan disclosed.

As to the reason for targeting the Indian Ocean Island, he explained that several of them have populations and cultures similar to those  in the Caribbean.


The people of Réunion even speak French Creole.

The population includes a mix of Blacks, Indians and Whites who have a similar cuisine to that of the Caribbean, the Baron Foods Limited CEO observed, adding that hot sauces are quite popular with the locals of the Indian Ocean Islands.

Mr. Ramjattan noted that in the continuous quest to export sauces of a continued high quality and consistency, Baron Foods Limited  is targeting countries with populations and cultures similar to the Caribbean  such as Mexico, India and nations in Africa.

 Over the years the locally-based company has exploded the myth that locally produced goods are not good and cannot be exported.

To date, Baron Foods Limited products are exported to over 25 countries all over the world.

Additionally, the company’s range of products has continuously won worldwide accolades and awards and are backed by international certificates to verify consistent quality.


Baron Foods Limited is a dynamic and reputable manufacturing company with plants located in three Caribbean countries.

The company currently manufactures over 150 products, certified against FSSC 22000:2010, which includes exotic and gourmet sauces, condiments, spices, flavorings, low fat mayonnaise, salad dressings and drink cocktails.

Baron Foods Limited, founded in 1991, is export oriented and currently serves markets in the USA, Canada, Europe, Guyana and the entire English, French and Dutch speaking islands of the Caribbean.

It also caters to the needs of contract packaging and private labeling markets.

  1. Fantastic ! You make us proud


  2. Great products. Fantastic label design. After 12 years living in St. Lucia, I am now in Panamá.
    There are about 250,000 people from Caribbean descend living here. There are many locally produced products here like Baron's. But your label design will make the difference, also the quality. The premium will be manufactured in the Caribbean.


  3. That is fantastic. Wishing you continued and well deserved success for your wonderful products.
