The Supermarket Association of Trinidad and Tobago is suggesting that government ensures sustained action on addressing the country’s rising food import bill. S.A.T.T. President, Vernon Persad, made the comment as he reflected on the second day of the twenty percent rebate on oil, flour and rice produced by National Flour Mills.
Mr. Persad admitted that while some efforts have begun in tackling the high food import bill, measures to address it must continue in earnest.
He said the two days of discounts on the three items received a favorable response from consumers, and supermarkets were able to successfully make the necessary adjustments.
