ANTIGUA BLACK PINEAPPLE AWARENESS DAY
Tuesday 10th July 2012
As part of the Mango Festival 2012 activities, the Pineapple Awareness Day will be hosted at the Cades Bay Agriculture Station on Thursday, July 26th, 2012. The aim of this activity is to bring further awareness of the Antigua Black Pineapple as well as other Pineapples produced locally and their varying uses.

The Antigua Black Pineapple is tagged regionally and internationally as the “Sweetest Tasting Pineapple in the world”. Hence, the involvement of the public is being encouraged as it would further the knowledge of the Antigua Black.
 
Mr. Caudley George, Chairman of the 2012 Mango Festival committee stated “It is the vision of this committee to do everything possible to promote the pineapple”. He added that in recognition of the day, the committee is appealing to all restaurants and hotels to feature dishes and drinks which include the Antigua Black Pineapple as an ingredient.
 
The day’s activities at the Cades Bay Agricultural Station will consist of tours of the Cades Bay Pineapple Farm exploring the history and other information on the pineapple and the Agricultural station, pineapple sampling, light pineapple inspired refreshments and by products of the pineapple. An invitation is extended to camps, public and private sector workers, church groups, farmers and visitors to participate in the tours and other activities.
 
The tours will commence at 8:30am and will be conducted every half hour until 1:30pm. The cost for this activity is EC$10.00 per person. Transportation will be provided at $10.00 per person round trip. However, individuals wishing to participate in this activity must be registered. Registration will take place at the Ministry of Tourism and ends on July 20th, 2012.
