About Dominica

Dominica is the Nature Island of the Caribbean.

She is a small island-country, only 35 miles long and 16 miles wide, but she is blessed with rivers, mountains, rainforest, beaches, waterfalls, natural hot springs, fertile land for agriculture, and rich verdant beauty with many species of tropical flowers, plants and trees.

Officially called the Commonwealth of Dominica,  the name given to her by her first known inhabitants (the Kalinagos) is “Wai’tukubuli” which means “tall is her body.”  This is a tribute to her mountains, the tallest of which is 4,747 ft. (Morne Diablotins in the north) followed by Morne Anglais with an elevation of 3,434 ft. These mountains call the water from the skies, fill her rivers with fresh rain, and provide a constant source of nutrients to the surrounding coast and rich marine life.

Dominica is the perfect setting for using nature’s bounty to create wholesome, healthy products.

And when you look at her rich cultural heritage – a  blend of African, European, North American and East Indian roots, it is no wonder that a broad spectrum of natural products is being born here.
