Region Nine to buy peanut shellers to boost industry

The Regional Democratic Council (RDC) of the Upper Takutu-Upper Essequibo is to procure peanut shellers to boost the industry’s prospects.

The Department of Public Information (DPI) said that Regional Chairman, Bryan Allicock made the announcement during a community engagement in Aranaputa on Saturday. The meeting was led by Minister of Local Government and Regional Development,  Nigel Dharamlall.

DPI said that the decision followed complaints from farmers about low peanut sales over the years which has worsened due to the pandemic.
