Prime Minister Kamla Persad-Bissessar SC discusses food prices with Feroze Khan, left, owner of Super Quality Complex, and Vernon Persad, president of the Supermarkets Association of T&T, during the latest round of the National Conversation where she met with supermarket owners at the Super Quality Complex in Chaguanas on Tuesday afternoon.


“I am very happy for this opportunity to have this conversation with you to listen and learn how we in the Government can work together with our nation’s supermarket owners to provide the best quality food and products at the most affordable level to citizens,” she said. 



Noting that many citizens have expressed concern over fluctuating food prices, the Prime Minister told supermarket owners: “Being here today, and having this conversation has effectively brought the issues of food quality, availability and affordability to centre-stage.” She promised to give consideration to concerns raised by the supermarket owners.
