PNG’s leading rice supplier, Trukai Industries, says it will not increase the cost of rice in the country.


Trukai Industries CEO, Greg Worthington-Eyre, said while Trukai understands and is deeply concerned over the current economic conditions in PNG, and the pending inflationary impact of fuel price increases, currency devaluation and reduced consumer spending power, it has no plans at this point of passing on the impact of these issues to PNG consumers.


Worthington-Eyre says Trukai’s focus on food security, which includes affordability and quality, is at the forefront and they will be making every effort to support the people of PNG.


Trukai is the oldest and largest rice distribution and manufacturer in PNG, having been established in February 17th, 1970.


Apart from rice, they also supply stockfeed.
