The Dominica Export Import Agency (DEXIA) calls on Dominica Diaspora in Florida to purchase dasheen from Dominica at local supermarkets in Florida.

In an effort to continue to promote the development of the agricultural sector of Dominica, the Dominica Export Import Agency (DEXIA), has continued to source markets for our Dominican farmers across the region and other international markets.

According to a press release from DEXIA, the main agricultural product being shipped to the US is Dasheen of the highest international standard which is set for fresh produce exports.

For the first quarter of 2019 a total of five 20ft containers of Dasheen were shipped to the United States of America (Florida) and the United Kingdom (London), totaling 85,000 lbs.

DEXIA aims to continue these efforts are expected to continue throughout 2019 into 2020.

DEXIA is in the process of developing various marketing strategies which will focus on capturing increase market share in these markets and other international markets. These efforts will continue to provide a steady revenue stream to Dominican famers and other citizens who provide various facilitation services to the supply chain. Hence, the effort of DEXIA directly benefits the rural economy and the economy of Dominica by extension.
