The TDC Group of Companies has been recognized for its contribution to the advancement of the agriculture sector in St. Kitts and Nevis.

The company received the Best Input Supplier Award in the Agricultural Division at the 2021 World Food Day Heroes Awards Ceremony organized by the Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Marine Resources, on Thursday 21st October 2021.

The award was presented to Mr. Iston Williams, Senior Manager of the TDC Home and Building Depot on St. Kitts by the Honourable Alexis Jeffers, Minister of Agriculture et al. The accolade recognizes, honours, and celebrates the company’s work in the field of Agriculture and Fisheries, and its contribution to food security, and helping to make the local food system more productive and sustainable.

The TDC Group through its Home and Building Depots continues to actively support a wide cross section of the farming community by providing agricultural inputs, training, technical assistance, and incentives during its annual Farmers Appreciation Sales Event in the month of March.

This year’s Food and Agricultural Organisation (FAO) World Food Day Awards was held under the theme, “Our Actions Are Our Future – Better Production, Better Nutrition, A Better Environment and A Better Life” and forms part of the activities organized to observe World Food Day.


The phrase ‘going pink’ is taken literally by the TDC Home and Building Depot on the Frigate Bay Road.

The store’s façade has been replaced with pink lighting at nights to show its corporate support for Breast Cancer Awareness, celebrated in the month of October.

Traditionally, the store hosts its annual Pinktober campaign, which features an in-store sales promotion and weekly free breast screening sessions for the public, in partnership with the Health fraternity.

This year, because of the COVID19 pandemic, the management team chose a unique, yet creative way to support the National effort and show solidarity by celebrating strength, survival, and advocacy for those affected by the disease.

About the Warren C Tyson Memorial Scholarship Programme

The TDC Warren Tyson Memorial Scholarship program, was named after the first Chairman, Mr. Warren C. Tyson, started in 1981. The program is designed to assist and support students entering the secondary schools across St. Kitts-Nevis.

The young scholars are eligible to receive financial assistance throughout their secondary and tertiary school tenures. Students are also afforded the opportunity to work at across several departments and related businesses during their vacation period, e.g., Easter, Summer, and Christmas, as well as on Saturdays, which helps them to develop socially and professionally.

Another related benefit is the fact that these students also receive a stipend while at work. Accordingly, the financial and academic benefits plus the experience and maturity that are gleaned from this opportunity are invaluable.

Since its inception, approximately one hundred and fifty (150) students have gone through the program. Today, some of these Warren Tyson Scholars are at University pursuing further studies or are full time employees within the Company, many who hold Managerial and/or Supervisory positions across the Group.
