Established in 1972 by local entrepreneurs, Jonas Browne & Hubbard (Grenada) Limited is a limited Liability company that offers a diverse range of products and service such as Building materials, Groceries, vehicles, shipping services, LAND leather materials, appliances and property insurance through its fully owned subsidiary, Grenadian General Insurance Company Ltd.
Let’s take a look at the History of our Company:
The business started operation in Grenada during the 1830s, the exact date is unknown. In 1915 it became a private limited liability Company known as A. Hubbard & Company Limited. By the 1940s, control of the company was passed to the Browne family of England who also operated an import-export Company in the United Kingdom under the name Jonas Browne & Sons. In 1947, the two companies were amalgamated, and the new Company was incorporated in the United Kingdom under the name Jonas Browne & Hubbard Limited.
During the late 1950s and up until 1971, to take advantage of the changing pattern of business in Grenada, the Company undertook several vigorous and imaginative expansions and improvements program. In 1964 Food Fair on the Carenage was established followed by Food Fair Grand Anse in 1971 with the tagline; ‘where you can fill your baskets without emptying your pockets’ which still stands today.
In June 2018 the Food Fair Grand Anse entered a new era with the implementation of technology to better meet the needs of customers, by introducing its online e-commerce store known as the Food Fair Webstore. This gave customers the opportunity to transaction business within the comfort of their homes and received free delivery or curbside pickup where applicable.
In 2020, the Webstore underwent a recent makeover and now offers a more responsive platform with cutting edge features including recipes. The same great customer service continues with a strong commitment to the tagline.
