Precision Global Incorporated received its ‘Made in Guyana’ certification from the Guyana National Bureau of Standards (GNBS).
The certificate was handed over to General Manager, Lesley Ramlall by Minister of Tourism, Industry and Commerce, Oneidge Walrond, M.P.
The certification mark will now be on the packaging for its virgin coconut oil, coconut flour, coconut chips and refined coconut oil, which are manufactured for the local and international market.
The minister commended the company for its initiative, and the setting up of its processing facility at Marudi, on the Soesdyke/Linden Highway, where persons from the area are employed.
She also highlighted that the company sources its coconuts from several parts of the country, creating an impact on economic development in the country.
“The coconut and its associated products are in high demand across the region and internationally. Close to 10,000 metric tonnes were exported in 2020 and this market is growing. I, therefore, encourage you to continue to invest and innovate and expand your operations. Once again, I assure you that in doing so, you will find that you will have the government’s fullest support,” Minister Walrond said.
