DAIRY FARMERS can now milk their cows confident that Pine Hill Dairy’s (PHD) products will be back in Trinidad and Tobago from next week.
On June 21, chief executive officer and managing director of Banks Holdings Ltd (BHL), Richard Cozier, announced that BHL had run up against a roadblock in accessing the Trinidad market as its Food & Drug Agency said several brands had non-compliant labelling.
After discussions between representatives of the two countries and PHD which resulted into PHD being given a six-month window to change its packaging, yesterday the dairy was preparing two 40-foot containers of two per cent one-litre Ultrapasteurised TGA milk and whole one-litre Ultrapasteurised milk to be shipped to the twin-island republic.
President of the Barbados Agriculture Trading And Investments Society, McDonald Stephenson, told the DAILY NATION the society was relieved upon receiving the good news about the shipment of the containers, valued at approximately US$56 000, holding 2115 cases, each case holding 12 cartoons.
