Being a Member

The AIBGA was established as a Growers Organization structured for membership and embracing all categories of banana/plantain growers. AIBGA was built on the principle of group structure; District Branches and Area Councils. Our members are growers of banana/plantain in rural Jamaica predominately St. Mary, Portland, St. Thomas, St. Catherine, Clarendon and St. James.
