April said: “I’m always eager to showcase the best of my island and hope to share a piece of this wonderful culture by making unique products available to customers in London.”
Jamrock’s owner, former Miss Jamaica April Jackson who went on to represent Jamaica at Miss Universe said “When you think of Usain Bolt, Bob Marley, Reggae, the beaches, the rum, the coffee, the distinctive accent, it’s easy to forget that Jamaica is just 150 miles long – it’s not even as big as most US states but has contributed so much. As a country, it is a great life lesson because it shows that you don’t have to be the biggest to have an impact in this world.”
