Bar operators in Cameroon have been warned by the Minister of Trade Luc Magloire Mbarga Atangana, to refrain from increasing the price of beer after they complained of challenges faced with distributors.
The Trade Union for Bar Operators in Cameroon had already decided to make adjustments on beer prices as from June 1, before the Minister’s intervention.
They said they had been left with no choice than to take action given that distributors were not making the brewery products fully available to meet their daily needs, as well as charging them higher, a situation which they revealed they had been in for over three months.
Despite fighting for a just cause, their approach was deemed inappropriate by Minister Luc Magloire Mbarga Atangana.
He said the vendors did not follow the right procedure, adding that it was not their place to take such decisions.
However, the Minister noted in his letter addressed to the bar operators that he had learnt of their concerns, and will take the necessary measures to remedy the situation.
