Elle and Vire Jamaica (+ FREE give-aways)

I concede, I’ve been MIA for a while now. Sincerest apologies. The past few weeks were spent prepping for my choir’s inaugural concert. We had a great show! Now that that’s out of the way, I’ve been able to breathe a little easier. Of course I had to make my return worthwhile, so I’ve got a few things in store for you loyal RF readers. Here’s a hint: France. Two return tickets to Paris maybe? Nah B, but it’s still pretty decent. Keep reading.

Recently I’ve come to the realisation that there really isn’t a strong presence of French products in Jamaica. In fact, I even found out that the majority of wines imported here comes from the US and South America, due to the lack of trade with France, and the high costs associated with such.

Nevertheless, pioneering French brand Elle & Vire has been gracing the dishes of Jamaican chefs and home cooks alike for the past decade or so, offering a variety of dairy products and bringing the characteristic French quality home to Jamaicans.

Established in 1947, Elle & Vire products are found on all five continents, in over 120 countries. Their mission is to offer the very best of French dairy savoir-faire to consumers and professionals.

Elle & Vire is distributed by Chas E Ramson, one of the oldest distributors in Jamaica which started in 1922. The Elle & Vire line of products is managed by Kathryn Silvera, a 4th generation member of the Ramsons’ family business since May 2007.
