Islands are known to witness higher tourism due to their pleasant atmosphere. It is not only limited to the environment but also to food. The great dishes also work effectively to attract consumers from various places, fueling their traction all over the world. One of the nation's most reliant on tourism is the Caribbean. The World Tourism Organization (WTO) estimates that the tourism industry contributes almost 50% of the GDP of United Nations Member States and is the main driver of job growth and foreign exchange earnings for the Caribbean economy. Jamaica's export of ackee brought in about USD 33,026 for fresh ackee and a staggering USD 24.9 million for canned ackee in 2022 alone, demonstrating the crop's rising importance in the global market.

Governments are focused on enhancing their country's development process by increasing their ability to export finished products and raw materials to other nations, which ultimately increases the flow of money into their economy. Ackee is a widely used fruit in traditional Jamaican cuisine, and the Jamaican Ministry is currently seeking partnerships with private investors and agricultural entrepreneurs to help achieve the objectives of the New FACE (Food Security, Climate Change Technologies, Agribusiness Development, Export Expansion) of the Food Initiative.

Public-private partnerships (PPPs) provide a promising opportunity to combine the knowledge and resources of the government with the ingenuity and capital of the private sector, creating a dynamic ecosystem that can boost ackee production to new heights. The Ministry of Agriculture and Fisheries is strategically focused on establishing organized ackee orchards to improve productivity and enhance food security. All of Jamaica's parishes are suitable for growing ackee trees, but St. Elizabeth and Clarendon are particularly well-suited for forming organized orchards. This expansion may further drive demand for the ackee fruit during the study period.
