The Grenada Co-operative Nutmeg Association (GCNA) first starts their operations on October 1, 1947.
It was formed from a Spice Working Committee set up by local farmers in 1942 and the Nutmeg Industry Ordinance organized in 1946. These two organizations were combined providing the establishment of the Grenada Co-operative Nutmeg Association (GCNA).
Since then, the GCNA has been running numerous agricultural campaigns to promote the harvest and consumption of nutmeg in the region. Its aim is to contribute in the development of Nutmeg Industry not just locally but also internationally.
GCNA was plan to become the main exporter of Nutmegs from Grenada to other countries all over the world. It was responsible for regulating and distributing the exports of Nutmeg and Mace products. To do all of this effectively, firstly, the association needs to:
– Stabilize the local prices make sure that there is no price competition between local exporters.
– Standardize the quality of Nutmeg products to increase its demand.
Thanks to the prized contribution of GCNA, nowadays, the local Nutmeg Industry shows a lot of big success even though it has gone through many challenges including natural disasters. It has become one of the most important economic sectors of Grenada.
Moreover, GCNA organizes some celebrations, usually in March or April, to transmit its messages about the necessity of planning and implementing farming experience for Nutmeg farmers in Grenada and promoting the demand for nutmeg products of the island.
These celebratory activities held by GCNA also target young locals to educate them about the importance of the Nutmeg agriculture in the region, the application of technology to increase the productivity of the local Nutmeg Industry.
All of these efforts made by GCNA are just about to boost the development of Grenada Nutmeg agriculture’s development and the livelihood of many on the island.
