Since the announcement was made that Mother’s Enterprise Limited would have new owners, tongues began wagging.
Words of change spread quickly among consumers.
Word also got out that the very famous Devon House line of patties belongs to the parent-company Mother’s. That was even more intriguing.
Last Saturday (May 27) at The Summit, Mother’s invited some of their partners, suppliers and customers for a cocktail, where they were introduced, not just to the new and current team, but to the delectable line of food items the group has on its menu.
Sheldon Seymour, incoming managing director, took the opportunity to acknowledge outgoing owners, Carlyle Hudson, Richard Foreman and Adrian Foreman for their innovation and development of the brand.
Seymour also introduced the new board of directors, Clement ‘Jimmy’ Lawrence (as chairman), Michael Ranglin (deputy chairman), Kevin Donaldson, Ravi Rambarran and Shaunna Carter.
Seymour was clear, concise and specific to his mandate where he declared that Mother’s will strengthen its position in the national market, while going global.
Dr Norman Dunn, state minister in the Ministry of Industry and Commerce, brought greetings on behalf of the Andrew Holness-led government and encouraged the new team to continue to “showcase the best of Jamaica.”
