Growing Agribusiness Together

Agriculture with BADMC

The Barbados Agricultural Development and Marketing Corporation (BADMC) was established by a legislative act (Cap. 254) in 1993. As a statutory corporation of the Ministry of Agriculture, Food, Fisheries and Water Resource Management (MAFFW), we inform, facilitate and develop Barbadian crop and livestock production, food innovation, processing and marketing opportunities for local agripreneurs and food enterprises. Through our work we create economic opportunity and help assure food and nutrition security for all Barbadians.


Our Mission is Facilitated by Three Developmental Divisions :

Agricultural Services

The Agricultural Services Division provides services for farmers including subsidised land lease, motor tractor cultivation, agricultural data and extension advisory services, as well as access to crop seeds, agro-chemicals and farm equipment.



BADMC’s Agribusiness Division provides services for agro-processors including market price research, food innovation, agro-processing, retail distribution and promotion. The Division also produces Carmeta’s family of gluten-free flours, bakery items and seasoned meats.


State Trading Enterprise

Our State Trading Enterprise Division responsibly manages the importation and distribution of import-controlled poultry, produce and agribusiness inputs in support of local agricultural sub-sectors.
