The glittering event also boasted esteemed dignitaries including Simon Hughes MP and His Excellency Dr. Zola Skweyiya, South African High Commissioner, presenting awards on the evening. Paul Scott was nominated for 2 awards – Entrepreneur of the Year and Enterprise Life Achievement; proudly winning the Life Achievement Award. The Enterprise Life Achievement award signifies the success and rapid growth of Paul Scott’s Business to date.
Caribbean Savouries Ltd was founded by Jamaican-born Paul Scott, a vivacious and hard-working entrepreneur with a vision for success and a passion for food. With years of international experience in the distribution industry Paul developed a keen eye for business. Whilst living in New York Paul was introduced to a range of patties that excited his taste buds and enthused his business mind. Upon returning to the UK he offered samples and taste-tests to his potential market and the feedback was phenomenal; with people comparing the range to authentic Jamaican Patties. With this enthusiastic response Caribbean Savouries Ltd was born; receiving positive notoriety across the nation.
Paul grew up in Kingston Jamaica, an area of the world famous for bringing us so much in the world of food, music and charisma yet also mired with political and economical issues. Paul stayed focused on his goals whilst growing up. He took part in the sound systems when he was at School and made friends with people in different communities despite the social unrest that was happening around him in Jamaica. He was always confident in his ability; though it took many years before he was to develop Caribbean Savouries he never gave up on his goals.
Faith is also an important factor in Paul Scott’s success. “I owe my life and success to God, it is only him who has opened doors for me and brought me success.” For anyone experiencing difficulties he encourages people to use their own faith to open the doors that they think are not possible to be opened. Growing up in Kingston Paul is no stranger to what happens when violence overshadows peace, hoping that the youth of today stops the violence, stay authentic and strives towards their own goals with the knowledge that nothing is impossible.
