NEW YORK, Oct. 15, 2007 -- - Caribbean home cooking gets a convenient new twist with the U.S. launch of Grace Caribbean Traditions,
the first full range of frozen meals to capture the robust flavors of
Caribbean food, without the hassle of hours in the kitchen.

The Grace Caribbean Traditions range includes four popular Caribbean
favorites -- Jerk Chicken with Rice and Peas, Jerk Shrimp, Curried Chicken
and Curried Mutton, all with white rice. The meals are ready to eat after
five minutes in the microwave.

"A lot of people are going to be surprised by the authenticity of these
meals. We've captured the flavors and essence of Caribbean home-style
cooking and made it convenient as a frozen meal. The reward is that once
you put the meal on the plate, you know that this is the real thing -- from
the spices to the consistency of the gravies that accompany each meal,"
said Ricardo Bryan, Regional Business Manager-USA, Grace Foods.

While Caribbean nationals living in the U.S. will easily welcome the
new products, the Grace Caribbean Traditions meals should also
find favor
with some of the millions of Americans who visit the Caribbean each year
and who are eager to relive the taste of the islands.

Grace Caribbean Traditions meals will be available in Caribbean stores
and leading supermarket chains, and are distributed by Calip Dairies
(718-518-8700) and Tree of Life, Inc. (904-940-2496). For more information,
