G.O.B. Warns Business Owners Against Price Gouging

The Government of Belize is warning business owners against price gouging at a time when shoppers are rushing to the shelves to stock up on groceries and buy construction material as part of their hurricane preparedness plans. Today, NEMO Coordinator, Daniel Mendez, reminded businesses that there are repercussions for predatory price gouging.

“In terms of the price gouging, it is really important to keep an eye on this. We know there is potential for this to happen. Like you said it is something that needs to be policed and it is something that the government will have to keep and eye on to ensure that we are protecting people so that there is no advantage being taken of as we as a country start to make those preparations. So, whenever we find that out the information needs to take up to the necessary channels to have action.”


“If I am a victim of it, is there any action I can take?”

“Send that information to NEMO so that we can do the necessary investigations.”


NEMO’s hotline is nine, three, six.
