Supermarkets fed up with import bureaucracies
WILLEMSTAD - The association of supermarkets is fed up with the bureaucracy that exists in the import of fruits and vegetables. Yesterday the supermarkets had about a meeting with the Ministry of Economic Affairs to discuss this important issue for them.
According to Joel Gois, owner of Goisco Supermarket at Biesheuvel, the current market protection rules are leading to corruption. It is good for government officials, but the public and the retailers have to pay the bill.
Vegetable and fruit products are becoming unnecessarily expensive because of the bureaucratic mill, says Gois.
