It may have taken three years for
the Cayman Islands Brewery to host their first Chamber of Commerce Business after
Hours, but the event staged Wednesday evening ended with a dream come true.
And that was to produce a product
that the Cayman Islands could be proud of.
Distribution Manager Matthew Leslie
said it had been a busy and exciting time for management and staff at the Brewery
located on Shamrock Road.
He said the company had gone from
producing one type of brand to three local brands – Caybrew, Caylight and Ironshore
Also during that time, he said the
company had gone from providing the local market; to exporting to the United States.
The goals for 2010 he said included
the expansion of its product line, continued educational process of thinking
green and recycling, expanding relationships with government and working with
Chamber in special events and promotions.
“As a local partner in the
community the company has assisted with fundraising events and we are proud to
be a partner in the environment with its recycling initiative and a member of
the Cayman Islands Chamber of Commerce,” said Mr. Leslie.
He also added they were proud of
their efforts to train and develop Caymanians in the field of manufacturing.
“As a Chamber member, we can say
that we have reaped the benefits of good business relationships,” he said.
After the welcome, guests were invited
to tour the facility before a number of prizes were given away.
