The former Member of Parliament has employed over 20 people at the liquid egg facility in Kingston.

Damion Crawford has been flexing his entrepreneurial muscles since his days at the University of the West Indies, Mona.

He’s had eight businesses including a travel company, home schooling, event planning and book rentals to name a few.

Today, Crawford, the Managing Director of Crafton Holdings, is supplying liquid eggs to hotels and food businesses across the island under the brand Super Fresh Liquid Eggs.

Crawford, a former lecturer and student of tourism management got the idea for the business from his studies.

He established the company on October 26, 2015 and made his first delivery on December 17, 2016.

“I recognised that every day, a hotel uses six eggs per room, on average, so there is clear demand for it,” Crawford told Young People in Business. “Plus, we are expected to get at least 2,000 hotel rooms in three years.”

A former Member of Parliament, Crawford has employed over 20 people so far.
