The Marketplace UncappeD exhibition was taken all the way to region three at the Leonora Synthetic Track, West Coast Demerara (WCD) on Saturday, where many local producers from across Guyana took the opportunity to showcase their products, while encouraging Guyanese to support these local businesses.
Approximately 40 booths were established with innovative products and other packaged foods on display, some of which are available in local supermarket and stores.
This is one of several exhibitions held over the last month by the Guyana Marketing and Services Association (GMSA) to assist producers with a platform to showcase their small and large scale enterprises.
While many were elated to showcase their creations, many related that a limiting factor is the packaging facilities.
Additionally, service providers and other sponsors were present to highlight their businesses.
Consumers were yet again reminded to buy local items which are of good quality and functions as well as imported products.
