Not all supermarket shelves are empty. That’s the word coming out of Tobago today.
Some supermarket owners are saying that they have had a steady supply of foodstuff since the exit of the Superfast Galicia in April.
One major Supermarket on the island is reporting that it has been able to maintain products on the shelves thus far.
Managing Director Kurt Warner told News Power Now today that they should be able to comfortably do so for the next two weeks.
He said however if the present cargo issues between the islands continue there may be a change in their situation.
Reports have indicated that there is a food crisis in Tobago as store owners could not get their goods fast enough to replenish their shelves.
However President of the Trucker and Traders Association president Horace Amede says that there is a reason for the disparity.
Speaking to News Power Now this morning he revealed that the Association was hopeful after a meeting with the Port Authority board last Friday.
