June 20, 2018 8:17 pm

The Economy Ministry is expected to approve more vendors to the CARE program with 16 businesses already participating in the program.

CARE, the abbreviation for the Cyclone Assistance Recovery Efforts is a government initiative targeting Fijians affected by Tropical Cyclones Josie and Keni and the subsequent flooding in between.

Economy Minister and Attorney General Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum has issued a warning to prospective new vendors to ensure they comply with the law after seven traders were charged with price variances among other offences.

“Of course we also urge and encourage all those vendors to ensure that they don’t price gouge, as you know that FCCC has also, I understand they will be charging a couple of suppliers, 2 or 3 suppliers."

The 16 approved retailers for the CARE program include GS Industrial Suppliers Limited, Auto Care Fiji Limited, Kasabias Limited, Vinod Patel and Company Limited – Home and Living, Subrails Furniture Centre Limited, Lonta Manufacturers Limited, Rups Investment Limited, Big Bear, Vinod Patel, Complete Homes and Building, RB Patel Group Limited, Visions Investments Limited, Haroon’s Hardware, Rakiraki Hardware Limited, New World Limited, Carpenters Hardware Limited, Homemaker and RC Manubhai.
