Valued Customers
12 March, 2020

Valued Customers,

You will note that the prices of some of our flours, pastas, curry powders, and aerated waters have increased significantly. These price increases are the result of changes in the tariff and duties on these products under the new Article 164 regime. The duties on the products in those categories increased from an average of 20% - 25% to 70 or 100 %.

The higher duties took effect from January 1, 2020, and affects products in the categories mentioned above, imported from outside of the OECS and Belize.

The increased duties under Article 164 are part of government regulations and the effects of such increases are out of our control.

We are however making every effort to manage the “extent” of the price increases wherever it is reasonably possible to do so.
