As a consumer, demand your product in its original packaging

ORANJESTAD - The Department of Economic Affairs, Trade and Industry (DEACI) has determined that in some supermarkets in Aruba, but especially in San Nicolas, products, such as rice, are sold in smaller portions without the original packaging, for example, without the name of the product or other information.

It is also the case with other products.

The DEACI urges consumers not to buy products in packaging without a name, brand, or information because:

  • One does not know if the indicated weight is correct;
  • it is not known whether the supermarket hygienically handled these products;
  • the shelf life of the product is not known.

 The DEACI controllers will be more vigilant about these practices, especially for products in the basic basket.

As a consumer, demand your product in its original packaging.
