PAN is one of Jamaica’s largest Food Festivals that goes beyond entertainment. PAN hosted by CB Foods continues to provide opportunities for Jamaican entrepreneurs. To date, we have directly impacted the lives of over 400 men and women, and their families.
This will be our 15th year and we are especially proud to continue this trailblazing experience. Our partners have believed and shared in our dream of investing in the people of Jamaica.
Together we are able to deliver a platform for these pan men and women to showcase their talent while continuously developing the chicken and food industry in Jamaica.
PAN is an investment in our home Jamaica and its people and the focus will continue to be supporting homegrown talent, entrepreneurship, and education.
EAT. LIVE. PAN
Copperwood Pork’s flagship event!
That one night a year where pork lovers across Jamaica gather to indulge in the sweetest meat, prepared by over a dozen of the island’s top chefs. Our pork chefs battle and bring their best foot forward to take home the Top Hog title.
Industry stakeholders, media, and foodies enjoy all things swine – if crispy pork belly or smoked, smothered ribs get your mouth watering, then this event is for you. You get to sink your teeth into-fall-off-the-bone-tender meat and satisfy your sweet tooth with desserts like bread budding with bacon bourbon sauce!
Each year patrons cast their vote for their Top Hog, and 2019 and 2020 saw Pink Apron’s Charissa Skyers undefeated.
CB Foods has been at the heart and soul of JFDF. Every year since 2015, for ten consecutive days, Kingston awakens with flavor and vibes as some of Jamaica’s best chefs, culinary masters and wine and spirit experts blend energies to create one unforgettable experience.
CB Foods is the proud founder and host of the festival, and has welcomed other industry partners to showcase their best in this must-attend calendar event.
The JA Rum Festival showcases our island’s excellence in rum, food, and music.
In just two years since the inaugural staging in 2019, the event has grown immensely, offering not just rum tastings and rum and food pairing workshops, but also live Jamaican musical acts and a Craft Village of local vendors and exhibitors that display Jamaica’s rich culture and heritage.
CB Foods has enjoyed partnering as Title Food Sponsor, bringing a wide variety of food experiences to the event – from good ol’ Jamaican PAN chicken to Japanese and Mexican fusions and BBQ smoked and smothered ribs. We love finding new ways to engage with our consumers so we’ll certainly be doing more Bad Dawg eating contests and do-it-yourself live demos!
Since 2016, CB Foods has been the Title Food Sponsor of the biannual JMEA Expo Jamaica. The Expo has become the largest exhibition and trade show of its kind in the Caribbean, highlighting multiple sectors from manufacturers, service providers, primary producers, exports as well as the tourism industry.
Today, it has been recognized as a platform where major trade and investment opportunities are created and strengthened. CB Foods is proud to be a part of the initiative and creating an all-encompassing food and entertainment experience for both exhibitors and patrons alike.
The annual Jamaica Made Christmas Expo held by the National Baking Company during the festive Christmas season has brought much exposure and opportunity to our local artisans – designers, craftsmen, potters, painters, bakers and other small manufacturers. CB Foods is happy to support the two-day affair with our CB Foods Village; proudly partnering with food vendors to serve up tasty, affordable quick meals to patrons on the move.
Since 2016, Copperwood Pork has rewarded its loyal retail customers through the in-store trade promotion, #KYPChallenge. Our customers’ staff work hard every single day to ensure that our products are received and stored safely, and merchandise so that you, our consumers, can enjoy fresh chicken, pork, or eggs with your loved ones.
To thank them, the eight-week #KYPChallenge rewards stores each week based on their performance. Copperwood has congratulated the Grand Champion each year with all-inclusive resort vouchers for all the meat room staff and Store Managers.
We all know that PAN chicken is authentic to Jamaica, and vendors across the island have creatively infused beer into their chicken and sauce recipes. The summer of 2019 was an exciting time for us. CB Chicken partnered with Red Stripe and launched a promotion called ‘Chicken and Beer’
All summer with the purchase of any Red Stripe 6 pack Flavour you could access a discounted price on the Better Tasting Chicken at supermarkets islandwide. With every purchase, customers dropped their receipts in the box for a chance to win a Grill.
Every two weeks there were giveaways with a total of 200 winners from supermarkets island-wide. Red Stripe 6 Packs were also banded with gifts for consumers to enjoy; bags, aprons, and cutting boards. Vibes were felt islandwide with Chicken and Beer Ravaz kept Jamaica dancing all Summer long.
To enhance the customer experiences with our product, we ensure that our retail product launches offer tastings across all stores where the product is being offered. We value our customers’ feedback and take the opportunity to hear your thoughts.
