Available sugar stock says Abraham – FBC News

0

The Fijian Competition and Consumer Commission reaffirmed that sugar stocks were available and the main problem was the slow resupply on supermarket shelves.

FCCC chief executive Joel Abraham said traders had confirmed they were doing their best to get around the temporary setback.

Abraham says that over the past few days they have received several complaints about a sugar shortage since the lockdown.

Abraham says consumers have also complained about traders limiting the sale of sugar saying the supply is low.

He adds that the Fiji Sugar Corporation has indicated that sugar is available and traders facing a supply shortage for replenishment should contact FSC for assistance.

According to the manager of the FSC factory, the blockages made the delivery of sugar quite difficult.

FSC said that despite the shortage in the local market due to increased demand, the sugar is available and ready to be packaged.

Delivery to other parts of Viti Levu will start from Friday with the packaging of 2 kg bags of sugar.

Abraham says they are aware that sugar is listed as a staple food, in the event of a pandemic outbreak such as COVID-19, it is not considered a critical commodity.
