The Minister of Home Affairs Sen. the Hon. Michael Fahy JP described discussions at a stakeholder meeting this morning regarding the future of the grocery store 10% discount initiative as, “fruitful and frank.”

Present at the meeting were representatives from Butterfield and Vallis, Lindos Group of Companies, BGA, AC Brewer, The Marketplace, The Supermart ltd and Viking Foods. 

The Minister said: “The meeting today was very constructive and it is obvious that grocers and wholesalers are sensitive to the needs of the people and remain willing to help in this regard. We all committed to meet again in four to six weeks to discuss potential solutions which collaboratively we feel will be best for the community. Accordingly, I will continue to keep the public informed as we approach year-end as to how we plan to move forward.”
