IDG provided technical assistance, infrastructure development, and institutional support to strengthen the private sector capabilities in the production, post harvest handling, transport, and marketing of non-traditional agricultural export products to regional Grantees.

In addition, the project helped strengthen the three regional organizations (Organization of Eastern Caribbean, Caribbean Agricultural Research and Development Institute, and Caribbean Agricultural Trading Company) responsible for its implementation.
