JCPS was incorporated on March 23, 1986 as a privately owned company, equally owned by the Sugar Manufacturing Corporation of Jamaica (SMCJ) and the All Island Jamaica Cane Farmers Association (AIJCFA). JCPS is authorized by the Sugar Industry Authority (SIA), as a marketing agent, to sell brown sugar and molasses.
Priority is given to supplying the domestic market with 50kg bagged sugar and a range of packaged sugar. JCPS also has access to the EU and USA markets.
The Company imports refined sugar on behalf of manufacturers and for retail purposes and supplies some customers through its distribution network around the island. JCPS’ warehousing takes place from two locations, namely Marcus Garvey Drive in Kingston and Bernard Lodge in St Catherine. The company strives to exceed the expectation of all its stakeholders.
