Supreme Ventures Limited #SimplyVestedinLove 2nd Staging back-to-school programme inspired by Nurse’s Heroism

Jamaicans got another chance to help loved ones with back-to-school preparations when Supreme Ventures Limited launches its second #SimplyVestedinLove back-to-school programme on Monday, August 13.

This is the second staging of the online-based outreach programme that encourages persons to help their friends and family send their children back to school in September.

This year’s campaign is aimed at reaching more persons and has shifted from a social media based initiative to the gaming company’s brand new website. Persons wishing to get involved in #SimplyVestedInLove no longer require a social media account, but should visit supremeventures.com/simplyvested and complete the online form.

The entry form requires participants to submit their contact information and that of the beneficiary they are nominating for assistance. The most impactful stories will be chosen as beneficiaries of the programme that closes on Friday, August 24. Under the programme persons can be nominated to receive gift certificates for textbooks, stationery, uniforms and other school items from local retailers.

SVL Assistant Vice President, Group Corporate Communications, Simone Clarke-Cooper said the response to the initiative last year was overwhelming and as such the company could not pass up the opportunity to stage it for a second year.

“#SimplyVestedInLove celebrates life changing small acts of kindness by ordinary Jamaicans and focuses on persons asking for help, not for themselves but for their fellowman. It’s that basis of selflessness that we focus on. We all know someone who needs help and sometimes we cannot render the assistance that is needed, but through #SimplyVested Supreme Ventures can facilitate that act on kindness on your behalf and make a huge impact one act of kindness at a time,” she said.

Simply Invested in Love – Nurse’s inspiring story caught Supreme Ventures Eye

In 2017, #SimplyVestedInLove assisted 100 students from 37 entries to the tune of $2 million to get back into the classroom. Mrs. Clarke-Cooper says they plan on helping even more students by increasing the number of beneficiaries.

“This year we plan to assess and award benefits to 100 entries, 50 per week, to maximize the assistance we have available and to spread the benefits even wider than last year. We want to help even more families achieve the dream of education for their children,” she said.

SVL’s #SimplyVestedInLove programme was inspired by the heroic actions of intensive care nurse at the Bustamanate Hospital for Children, Nurse Davia Tucker who saved infants from a fire that broke out in the Intensive Care Unit in 2017.

Nurse Tucker’s decision to share the accolades and gifts that were given to her by Corporate Jamaica, including Supreme Ventures, with the other hospital employees who assisted her efforts inspired the ‘each one help one’ focus of #SimplyVestedInLove.

Mrs. Clarke-Cooper explained that while Supreme Ventures has lent its financial support to various initiatives at the national level, #SimplyVestedInLove is a chance for the gaming company to localize its outreach efforts to the everyday Jamaican.

GraceKennedy Limited Amazon Store Grows as they aim for JA$1 billion by 2020

“Shopping online allows greater access and convenience for existing and new consumers via one of the largest online shopping portals”

GK CEO Don Wehby commenting on their Amazon Store

GraceKennedy Limited now has more products on Amazon (Bennett, 2018, August 08) than before. They now have two more products added to their lineup on their Amazon store, which you can visit here:

https://www.amazon.com/s?ie=UTF8&me=A2Y1AQHHTN14YJ&page=1

  • US$14.94 Grace Coconut Milk Powder 500ml in packs of 6
  • US$35.00 Grace Coconut Milk Powder 500ml in packs of 24
  • US$38.49Grace Coconut Milk Powder 500ml in packs of 36
  • US$54.00 no pulp Grace Pure Coconut Water

The new product offerings now bring to 59 the total number of products being offered by GraceKennedy and its subsidiary La Fe Foods on Amazon, including:

  • Grace Mackerel
  • Tropical Rhythms
  • Grace Ackees

Still, Grace Coconut Powder and Jerk Seasoning are currently listed as the most popular products for consumers, with their Jerk Seasoning even having an ebook (Deer, 2017, October 10) on how best to use the product.

Total sales thus far for racking up sales to date of Grace Coconut Powder and Jerk Seasoning are 101 and 362 units respectively, mainly coming from the Canadian Market.

So what does GraceKennedy have in mind for their store?

GraceKennedy and Amazon – Losses acceptable as Brand Awareness increases

GraceKennedy has embarked on a journey to achieve the following:

  • Performance
  • Shareholder value

Since 2018, they have been reviewing the following parts of their company with an aim to achieve JA$100 billion in revenues by 2020:

  • Overall organizational design
  • Cost structure
  • Business processes

According to Wehby this not only benefits them financially, but is a part of the run up to the 100th Anniversary to achieve this revenue goal, quote: “The organisational changes will allow us to leverage the existing strengths within the group as we continuously look at ways of improving the way we do things for the benefit of all stakeholders. We look forward to reaching our 100th anniversary more energised and well on our way to realizing our goal of becoming a global consumer group”.

GraceKennedy Limited is seeking to drive up sales in the Canadian market. Since the launch on Amazon in August 2015, CEO Don Wehby has noted that the company’s footprint in the US covers 39 states and continues to grow.

They’ve received order from the US military and as far away as Alaska and Hawaii. Their main secret weapon has been their Natural Juices, which they hope will take advantage of the consumer drive towards healthier drink options (Deer, 2016, January 3) instead of consuming sodas.

So is there any indication that GraceKennedy will achieve JA$1 billion by 2020?

GraceKennedy’s JA$1 billion – Online Sales from Canada and USA driven by Health concerns

Already the numbers for the first 6 months of 2018 are positive and should make investors bullish about investing in GraceKennedy stock:

  • JA$48.4 billion in Revenue
  • 3% or J$2 billion increase compared with 2017
  • JA$2.5 billion Net profit
  • 2% or J$266.1 million increase compared with 2017

Mr. Wehby attributed to growth in the Group’s domestic foods business and insurance segments. Despite this, GraceKennedy’s international foods business experienced a decline in pre-tax profits in 2018 compared to the first six months of 2017.

This was mainly due to the performance of Grace Foods UK Limited which made significant investments in the Nurishment and Aloe brands (Deer, 2016, January 3) resulting in increased costs.

Still, this will lead to more sustained brand value as more Canadians get hip to their Jamaican Products and the idea that they are packed to be much healthier.
