EYE ON THE BUDGET: Food Prices to Increase? Former Supermarket Head Optimistic.

Past President of the Supermarket Owners Association Kumar Maharaj believes that the Budget presentation today will not adversely affect consumers.

He does however feel that there will be a change in the purchasing pattern of consumers.

He says, while many are likely to be concerned ahead of the presentation, he believes when the dust settles, consumers will continue to spend money to purchase goods.

Mr. Maharaj also said local farmers do not sell produce to the supermarkets at competitive prices.

He also lamented the fact that agriculture is not being used as a means of diversification in Trinidad and Tobago.
