Blake-Bennett’s appointment as CEO, which took effect on November 15, sees her taking control of the company’s biggest revenue earner, as well as overseeing the spin-off of the manufacturing division into a new company to be called Caribbean Dreams Foods Limited. Jamaican Teas intends to list the new subsidiary.

She relieves Group CEO John Mahfood of responsibilities for the manufacturing division, allowing him to focus on the growth of Jamaican Teas real estate division, its investment company QWI and its supermarket businesses, Bay City Foods and Shoppers Delite.

Jamaican Teas is also looking to grow its business through acquisitions, on which Mahfood will take the lead.

“While Diana will focus on the manufacturing business, my focus will change to looking at potential acquisitions along the lines of other manufacturing businesses that complement our business,” Mahfood told the Financial Gleaner.
