Catch as only TT’s “Catch” can

The line in the popular commercial says “Catch me if you can!”  – and that’s exactly what this Trinidad-born brand is doing as it starts to export its first set of product to Cyprus soon.

Arthur Lok Jack established Associated Brands Industries Limited (ABIL) in 1974 and “Catch” is among the many popular chocolate products and confectioneries produced by the company.    

Since then  Lok Jack has been persistent in exploring foreign markets, starting with the Caribbean Common Market (CARICOM) where  (ABIL) has a dominant presence.

The Cyprus breakthrough may be considered a significant breakthrough as part of Lok Jacks’s drive to ride high with world players in the game of chocolate where Trinidad and Tobago already reigns as a key player in blending.

All Aboard the TT Exporter

In recognition of the need to generate foreign exchange from products outside her traditional sources, Trinidad and Tobago has identified Agriculture as a possible source of “forex” at a time when energy prices have begun to fall.

This was the message sent by Finance Minister Colm Imbert at the country’s National Budget debate in Parliament last September. Figures presented by the Minister indicate that for the 2019 to 2020 period, TT has been experiencing a downward slide in oil and gas prices which has been a cause for concern.
