School breakfast suppliers cut their credit
The president of the Asociación de Suplidores de Alimentos a las Escuelas de República Dominicana that supplies public school breakfast announced they are suspending food service as of 13 March 2017. Marino Peralta, president of the organization, said the government is in arrears with their members since October 2016. Given these circumstances, they say they can no longer afford to continue the service.
Peralta said the stoppage is not to pressure the authorities but is due to the internal situation the lack of payment has caused within their businesses. He said they have over extended their own credit with their suppliers.
Peralta says they have informed Rene Jaquez Gil, director of the Instituto Nacional de Bienestar Estudiantil, the government department in charge of the school breakfast program. They urged that President Danilo Medina intervene and order payment to be made to the school food service association members.
