Bag drinks and ice pops have always been a favourite with school-going children and even adults. When the sole local manufacturer of the products closed down in 2016, many were those who feared that a part of the country’s heritage had gone down with it.This new venture produced the first batch of products to the local market on 22 January this year, and owner, Mr Trevor Seaton, is grateful that with the technical and financial assistance.
Thanks to the Development Bank of St. Kitts and Nevis (DBSKN), the industry has been revived albeit with a new name and in a new location. Seaton Manufacturing, situated at the St. Peter’s Commercial and Institutional Development, is the new name in the production of the traditional bag drinks and ice pops.
