Jamaica exported on Tuesday, April 14, 2015, the first large shipment of certified bamboo charcoal to the United States, a move seen as key to the revival of an industry the government hopes will boost the economy and create jobs.

The New Horizon Christian Outreach Ministry is planning to revolutionise the multi-billion dollar bamboo industry through an entrepreneurship training programme in bamboo utilization, energy and agro-processing.

Jamaica’s first major supply of internationally certified organic bamboo charcoal, totalling 9,600 pounds, is scheduled to be shipped to the United States (US) on Tuesday, April 14.
