Belvedere Estate Largest Producer

The joint venture between Jamaica Flour Mills and Jamaica Banana Producers, Ltd. (one of the largest banana growers in the world at that time) led to Belvedere Estate as the largest producer of papaya, by volume, in Jamaica. Within the industry, it was known that Jamica produced the sweetest papaya, due to centuries of growing sugar cane, which naturally sweeten the soil. However, Jamaica was not known for its timely delivery of the fruit which led to overwhelming spoilage and a bad reputation.
