BICO ponders production return


Share post:

THERE’S A CHANCE ice cream lovers could be tasting Barbadian-made BICO products again. But not just yet.

For now, they will have to stick with the current product which has been manufactured in Trinidad and Tobago and Suriname for the past seven years.

General manager of BICO, Joanne Pooler, said the company’s executive board was certain to review whether to return production to these shores, having won a recent multimillion-dollar lawsuit in the wake of a fire seven years ago that crippled its ability to produce ice cream here in Barbados.

For BICO, coming back home still isn’t a sure thing, even though more than 50 per cent of the infrastructure required to build a new production plant at its Harbour Road facility has already been put in place, making sure if they do decide to come back to Barbados, the transition should not be a difficult one.
