Roger Clarke is Jamaica’s Minister of Agriculture & Fisheries.
He grew up in Glen Islay, Westmoreland, where he helped his parents and grandparents on their farm, which produced root crops and vegetables. He attended the Mannings High School and later went on to pursue extensive management training at the now defunct Jamaica Industrial Development Corporation and Harbridge House in the United States in the 1960’s.
He has worked extensively with several sugar estates in Jamaica for almost 30 years, which allowed him to interface with a significant cross section of the farming community. Today, he owns his own farm that produces a myriad of crops and is the largest sugar cane producer in St. Elizabeth.
