Life Science Park

Export Barbados (BIDC), under its three economic pillars — Bio, Ocean and Design — is doing its part to help the country achieve a sustainable and life- centered approach to development.

Through the Newton Life Science Park, Export Barbados is seeking to provide a supportive and innovative environment

for manufacturers to develop and supply breakthrough life sciences technologies and products to the world. This can be seen in the International Food Science Center (IFSC), the first stage of the Life Science Park. Launched in November 2022, it currently provides manufacturing and laboratory testing services  (to  international  standards)

for manufacturers of condiments and sauces. Also, with the global shortage of cornstarch, the IFSC is promoting sea moss as a readily available binding agent.

The Park would feature a bio-hydrogen- powered Digital Innovation and Health Tech Hub.
