This year, they will  continue their support of the Jamaica Inn Foundation’s annual Backgammon Tournament which is now  in its 6th year.  

The tournament was established to aid raising awareness and funds which contribute to the sustenance  and development of our coral reefs and marine life. As an integral supplier to the tourist industry, Arosa  understands how important environment sustainability is to the preservation of our beautiful country. 

The competition is scheduled to take place between June 2-4, 2023 at the Jamaica Inn, Ocho Rios, where  approximately 50 competitors will be going head to head for a chance to win over JM$1 million in cash  and prizes. As a gold sponsor of the tournament, Arosa will have their delicious products as a part of  breakfast, lunch and general refreshments for the participants.  

“At Arosa we are very aware of the social and environmental issues affecting our nation. One way in  which we can contribute to this is to be a partner with a noble and far reaching enterprise such as this  and we are committed to it. We are here not only as business partners, but the work being done is quite  admirable in aid of sustaining the environment and we are happy to be a part of it,” shared Stewart  Jacobs, General Manager, Arosa Limited.  

An overview of this year’s activities, updates from the main beneficiary White River Sanctuary as well as  their current and ongoing initiatives were highlighted at yesterday’s press conference. Additionally, the announcement of project expansion to include contributions to the care and preservation of the  Mammee Bay Sanctuary.

Loyalty is very important to one’s resilience building and I am  pleased to call Arosa a very important partner as they have been there through thick and thin. Arosa’s  support of the White River Fish Sanctuary via their support of the Jamaica Inn Foundation’s fundraising  event, is an indication that they place great emphasis as a company on environmental protection  initiatives and hence our values are very aligned.
