Brown Sugar Supplies Delayed – White Sugar Available

spot_img

The Ministry of Commerce, Manufacturing, Business Development, Cooperatives and Consumer Affairs is experiencing a shipping delay of brown sugar due to supply chain issues, and is actively working to expedite shipments to St. Lucia.

Global supply chain issues constrain a variety of basic goods from reaching the hands of consumers. Sugar shipments continue to be impacted due to container shortages; specifically 20 ft containers are becoming increasingly difficult to source due to congestion at ports and rising demand.

The Ministry would like to reassure the public that every avenue is being pursued to mitigate the impact of the global supply chain disruptions.

Brown sugar is expected to arrive by this weekend; however, refined (white) sugar is available to consumers for purchase.

The Ministry wishes to thank you for your patience and understanding.

For further information, please contact the Consumer Affairs Department at 468 4224/4225/4234/4239.

  1. I would like the ministry to come out and say if the brown sugar should be rationed because i didnt hear anything of this sort and I know that there will have supermarkets that will just take it on their own to tell consumers that they can only purchase a certain amount of sugar or you have to purchase an item other than sugar so you can be able to purchase the sugar. promise supermarket is famous for that i dont know what these people feel

  2. @ma malay
    Would you rather that or the supermarket just not supply sugar? It has to be worth their while too.
