30 businesses targeted for gouging sugar prices

The Belize Bureau of Standards has been inspecting business establishments countrywide after receiving official complaints of price gouging for sugar. You will recall that on December 4th, the Government announced that the price of plantation white sugar would go up by 25 cents to 75 cents only until January 1st, 2016 but some businesses took to increasing the price right after that announcement was made. If your grocer is selling at the new price, get the evidence and call the Supplies Control Unit at 822-2665
