Training & Capacity Building - Branding, Packaging & Labelling - Grenada

Assigment:
Global markets are becoming more and more competitive. Often consumers ‘judge a book by its cover’ (the packaging) when deciding on what products to choose. But it is the labelling requirements that could decide if a product is allowed into a market or not. If firms are not able to meet basic labelling and packaging requirements, their efforts to access global value chains (GVCs) could be limited, time-consuming and costly.  Thus, branding, packaging and labelling are important aspects of creating wealth and helping firms move up the value chain. As such, the Government of Grenada, Ministry of Trade, hired Leve Global to provide capacity building and training to micro, small and medium firms to improve their branding, packaging and labelling.

  3. Carried out an audit of current packaging and labelling practices in Grenada
  4. Assessed the competitiveness of Grenadian firms with particular focus on the potential for competitiveness in the area of packaging and labelling
  5. Carried out a SWOT Analysis
