A supermarket chain has launched a video series designed to highlight home-grown businesses whose products are on sale in its stores.

Entrepreneur Spotlight, created by MarketPlace, will feature a total of 10 businesses over a month on its social media pages.

Vernon Hassell, vice president of purchasing and procurement at MarketPlace, said: “Our Entrepreneur Spotlight celebrates the resilient, innovative and tenacious spirit of local entrepreneurs.

“The Covid-19 pandemic has negatively impacted many families and our economy. In search of a creative effort to support local entrepreneurs who distribute their products through our stores, we came up with this beautifully captured digital series.

“The series creates more exposure for local products whilst enabling the entrepreneurs to tell a bit of their story about their business, at no expense to them.”

The series will air on Wednesdays and Fridays from tomorrow until October 2 on MarketPlace's Facebook and Instagram pages.

It will kick off with Honest Greens, a specialist in leafy green vegetables, and will also include companies such as sweet maker Bermuda Glass Candy, frozen treats firm Yo Cherry, Lucinda's Bakery, D&G Sherbet, 9 Parishes Rum Swizzle, Monica's Bakery and popcorn producer Glam Pop.

Two farms, Wadson's and Pacheco & Sons, will also be featured.

Mr Hassell said: “Our aim is to find ways to further boost the economy and support local entrepreneurs, and it is our hope to continue to grow our local product partners.”
