  1. There is no reason for St Lucia to be importing canned corn or other canned products, Especially DELMONTE Whatever happened to grow local? smh

  2. Why is St. Lucia importing (GMO) Genetically modified foods. GMO’S are connected to illnesses and diseases.

    Plus, the toxics negatively affect the brain causing violence.

    Then the plastic which line the inside of the cans have BPA, another toxic.

    Can foods have preservatives.

    These can foods don’t even taste good.

    Lord, your people need some wisdom so they will stop being fooled.
