Enhancing Bahamian hot sauce and spice supplier D’vanya’s digital marketing

Being a well-known hot sauce and spices brand in The Bahamas for 20 years, D’vanya’s found it was time to expand in international markets. Online marketing and promotion are essential to boost sales and online visibility towards international buyers. Therefore, the company defined the ambition to improve its online presence in export markets and increase the focus on digitalising their business.

However, due to the global pandemic, D’vanya’s faced several challenges. Thanks to Carib-Export’s (Caribbean Export and Investment Agency) Direct Support Grants Programme, D’vanya’s was able to reach financial aid to achieve its strategic objectives.

The digital marketing activities Globally Cool and D’vanya’s conducted also contributed to the objectives of the Regional Private Sector Development Programme, whose goals are to increase employment creation and reduce poverty.
