Today, the company boasts a range of over 35 products, all produced at the factory in Central Village manufactured under our two (2) brands: SUNRITE and SUNRITE SELECT. The product range includes: Jerk condiments, pepper sauces, jams, jellies, canned Ackee, canned Callaloo, canned Breadfruit, baked Bammies, chutney, savory jellies and other seasoning sauces.
