During times of slavery, River Doree was known for its sugar plantation. The idea behind Doreeville is to use the concept of this struggle our forefathers endured during slavery as a point of reference in our history to remind ourselves that we should never stop fighting towards equality and a world that’s is prized on not giving up no matter how gloom the road ahead may seem.
“Never, Never Give Up” which is attributed to all our products is there to remind us that the race is not for the swift but those who can endure.

When Hurricane Tomas ravaged the local community in Saint Lucia’s agricultural breadbasket, six women were determined to rebuild it, one grain at a time. Rain Forest Foods is located near Soufriere Town, Fond St Jacques is a small agricultural village with roots in sugar plantations. Today it is a vibrant community growing various crops. But that wasn’t always the case. In 2010, Hurricane Tomas passed 40 miles south of St Lucia devastating the island. The small community of Fond St Jacques was the hardest hit.
It was feared that some parts of the district would never recover. In the aftermath, six locals bounded together, determined to bring prosperity back to their village. Lydia Cazaubon, Magdalena George, Shernell Joseph, Mary Steva, Roseabelle Josep and Michaela Phillip partnered with local farmers to create Rainforest Foods Ltd, the first all-women run business in the community. Their goal was to create a sustainable income for the women of the community, by producing handmade batches of cereal.
Rainforest Foods now produces five granola products made of locally grown sweet potato, breadfruits, coconut, coconut oil, honey and spices. In addition to using seeds, they’re planting some as well, ensuring their business promotes growth in their community. Proceeds contribute to the education and capacity building of their employees, to which they provide training in business management, marketing, food safety and IT.
