In a commitment to positively affect the lives of Jamaican athletes through healthy eating and sports, JP St Mary's has signed on as the Official Healthy Snack Partner of the Jamaica Football Federation (JFF).

This partnership with the JFF, in the value of $433,000, will provide junior and senior players in the JFF'S programme with access to JP St Mary's products for training and matches.

JP St Mary's is no stranger to the JFF, having sponsored the federation previously, and both parties are excited to resume the partnership.

President of the JFF, Michael Ricketts, is excited that JP St Mary's is back on board to assist the programme.

"I must express my absolute delight to have JP St Mary's back on board, as they once were, as sponsors. The entire board of directors, technical staff, and teams are absolutely delighted and looking forward to a great and ongoing relationship with JP St Mary's," Ricketts said during a brief handover ceremony at the JFF's office located at New Kingston, last Friday.

"The JFF has an overall responsibility to organise all football events in every nook and cranny of Jamaica, and we take this responsibility seriously. We want to ensure that we have a product that is marketable so that people in Jamaica will gravitate towards football and JP St Mary's will be playing an integral role in this process," he added.

Neleta White, national sales manager at JP St Mary's was also delighted as they officially presented the cheque and first batch of fresh fruits and snacks.

"At JP St Mary's, we will always be in support of the community and national activities that positively impact our society and the region. Football is very special to us as a country as it unites us and teaches our athletes discipline. JP St Mary's is committed to fuelling our nation's athletes and champions with the right nutrients for a healthy and happy life. Our tropical fruits and snacks are fresh from the farm and they also taste great!" noted White.
