(Guyana Chronicle) WITH most of the preliminary works almost completed, construction of the highly-anticipated Guyana, Barbados food terminal will soon commence, Agriculture Minister Zulfikar Mustapha said.

Mustapha, in an invited comment, said that technical officers from both Guyana and Barbados are on the ground, and are working assiduously on the project.

“The land has been identified, the visit has been made, there were some changes to the plan, but those have been resolved, and we will see the construction of the food terminal starting very soon. The preparatory works for the land site have commenced already, so it’s a matter of time now for the physical work for the food terminal itself to start now,” Minister Mustapha said.

When completed, the food terminal will be able to store more than 40 containers of food, and will also be equipped with a processing and packaging plant. It will also provide cold storage facilities for seafood, packaging and processing plants.
