Boston Jerk Centre under threat
Gareth Davis Sr, Hospitality Jamaica Writer
World-renowned Boston Jerk Centre in Portland is under serious threat of imminent closure as a result of repeated incidents of tourist harassment and lack of adequate sanitary convenience. The problem is further compounded by complaints of the unhygienic practices of some vendors.
The crisis has sparked the intervention of chairman of the Ministry of Tourism's self-styled Destination Assurance Council (DAC) Errol Hanna, who is reportedly racing against time to save the iconic attraction which has a rich tradition, dating back to the days of the Maroons.
