Chawla told BBN that their current stock was produced in February 2017 and imported in March 2017, and that their company “will maintain their current pricing for the Easter season or until stocks last”
Presidente and Kubuli beers are imported into Belize from St. Vincent and Dominica, respectively, under the trade protocols of the Caricom Single Market and Economy (CSME).
