REQUEST FOR PROPOSALS
FIVE MARKET STUDIES IN THE CARIBBEAN
The Canadian Hunger Foundation (CHF) is currently implementing a project in the Caribbean called
Promotion of Regional Opportunities for Produce through Enterprises and Linkages (PROPEL) project.
Funded by the Canadian Department of Foreign Affairs, Trade and Development (DFATD) and CHF,
the aim is to increase the value of Caribbean fresh produce accessing high-value markets (HVM) in
the Caribbean and internationally by CAD100 million
over six years.
CHF is requesting proposals from consultants to undertake market studies in five countries: Jamaica;
Guyana; St. Lucia; Barbados; and Trinidad and Tobago. The methodology for each study is similar,
in order for PROPEL to analyze information across the five countries. Individual Terms of Reference
(ToR) for each country have been prepared and are posted on the CHF website at:
The Request for Proposal (RfP) is open to both firms and individuals from the Caribbean region or
Canada. An individual may only bid on one country study given the short time frame for completion
of all studies. Firms may bid on more than one country study. If the bid is for more than one study,
the firm must have adequate qualified personnel to undertake the country level work simultaneously
in multiple countries.
These are listed in individual ToRs found on the CHF website at:

Days before its rescheduled opening,
Caribbean Cinemas Southpark 10 has started
advertising shows for this weekend.
The cinema, which was shut down on August
20, is due to open tomorrow or possibly Friday,
once the cinema operator s licence is granted.
Owner Robert Carrady has been waiting for
the licence to be approved since late last month.
In an interview with the T&T Guardian on
Sunday, Carrady said he had been hoping to get
the licence before the Independence weekend
but this did not materialise because of ongoing
industrial activity at San Fernando Magistrates
He said all the paperwork had been submitted
but there was a minimum waiting period of 21
days, which would end on Friday.
Saying losses had already amounted to more
than $1 million, Carrady said he was grateful for
the favourable reviews the multiplex had received
after its gala opening late last month.
On August 20, police and fire prevention officers
shut down the $20 million cinema the day after
its opening because it did not have a licence.
It was opened by acting San Fernando mayor
Junia Regrello, who later said the closure had
affected investor confidence and that the Cin-
ematography Act of 1936 was archaic and should
be revamped, since it did not apply to modern
cinemas. He said the cinema and fire licence was
an outdated document that dealt with film and
was not required for modern movies which were
