‘Bajan’ Bico coming again

Barbadians should once again get Barbadian-made ice cream from BICO when that company opens its multi-million dollar manufacturing and storage plant at its Harbour Road, Bridgetown location at the end of June.
A fire had shut down the company’s operations in August 2009 forcing them to have some of their smaller ice cream products produced in Trinidad and others in Canada.
BICO’s executive chairman, Edwin Thirwell, said that with the opening of the new state-of-the-art facility, the “very small amount” of ice cream being produced in Trinidad would come to an end.
In a press conference at the company’s Harbour Road location today, Thirlwell said the facility which will cost approximately $6 million facility was originally scheduled to be opened around Easter.
He said it was three months behind schedule.
