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.

YEDAI Project training Instructors to teach future Jamaican Animation and Video Game Entrepreneurs

“….continuously build the capacity of Jamaican instructors, which will, in turn, improve the skills of young people so that they can participate in the growing animation industry” 

Principal Finance Officer at the OPM, Rosalie Phipps, speaking on Friday July 27 at the Excelsior Community College in Kingston on the ‘Train The Trainers’ component of the YEDAI Project

Animation is now taking flight with training for some 50 animation instructors (Angus, 2018, July 29) from training institutions from secondary, tertiary and vocational institutions.

This is thanks to the Government’s YEDAI (Youth Employment in the Digital and Animation Industries) Project, as part of the ‘Train The Trainers’ component of the project, executed by the OPM (Office of the Prime Minister), thanks to a JA$1 billion boost (Mcintosh, 2018, February 21) in funding.

Principal Finance Officer at the OPM, Rosalie Phipps, during a speech at the closing ceremony for the participants on Friday July 27 at the Excelsior Community College in Kingston, urged them to pass on the new skills to students.

Implemented over three (3) years ago, the ‘Train The Trainers’ initiative under the YEDAI Project has resulted in increased success of students in the CAPE (Caribbean Advanced Proficiency Examination).

After all, Jamaica can gain more from the US$332 billion dollars annually (Deer, 2016, October 3) from both the Animation and Video Gaming Industries.

So what exactly is the ‘Train The Trainers’ initiative under the YEDAI Project.

YEDAI Project ‘Train the Trainers’ – Technology Tools and Techniques for Animation and Video Game Entrepreneurs

The ‘Train the Trainers’ component of the YEDAI Project aims to improve local animation training programmes. Teachers basically learn about the fundamental principles of 2D and 3D animation, based on recommendations from local animation studios and institutions, and international education experts.

The YEDAI Project is being undertaken through funding from the World Bank. Having been featured at the SRC (Scientific Research Council) National Science and Technology Fair (Deer, 2018, May 19), their objectives are clear and simple:

  • Fostering entrepreneurship
  • Making Jamaican youth employable
  • Creating start-up ecosystem

This type of training helps the instructors to teach the children entrepreneurship using animation as their skill. It will foster the growth of youth-led start-up enterprises by learning the latest Animation production and distribution (Deer, 2018, June 28) techniques to make them truly global citizens partaking in the US$322 Billion Dollar Animation and Video Game Industry!!
