Our Story

Hope Kidd, founder of Jamaican Prducts
Hope Kidd (Dilworth-Kidd)

Jamaican Products was established in 2005 more as a hobby than anything else. It was a way of sharing the best of Jamaica, land of my birth, with my adopted country Australia.

In 1981 I arrived in Australia to undertake post graduate studies in engineering.  Although my plans were to return and contribute to building Jamaica, life had other plans.

Admiring Australians’ adventurous nature in their exploration of different cultures and cuisines I realised how well placed Jamaican Products was to being that doorway for the Jamaican industry.

What started as a personal endeavour is now mushrooming into something bigger.

Our company offers both imported Jamaican products and other traditional Jamaican items actually made here in Australia.

The imported products include the well know jerk seasoning, sauces, spices, Ting and other beverages, hair products to assorted memorabilia. We help Australia chefs, professional and amateur alike, create the real taste of Jamaica.

Our “Made in Australia” items includes the Take & Bake range of frozen handcrafted Jamaican patties and jerk seasoned butterfly chicken and chicken wings.  Also on offer are seasonal Easter buns and Christmas cakes.

You have the opportunity
to make customised orders if your favourite is not listed on the website.
