Jamaica’s early history of economic activity is grounded in food.   As the slave plantations produced sugar for England’s tables and global trade, the slaves eked their domestic food stocks from Jamaica’s fertile soil.  The ability to provide for the family was always on the mind on the slaves and later, the free Jamaicans.
