Sunshine Snacks has announced that it has taken the executive decision to open the gates of the Queen’s Park Oval to local nuts vendors to sell homemade roasted peanuts following a public call by cricket supporters.
In a statement Monday, Sunshine Snacks General Manager, Kristine Thompson stated, “As an official sponsor of TKR, who actually own the rights to selling at the Queen’s Park Oval- their home grounds, Sunshine Snacks purchased the exclusive right to sell snacks and nuts during the games and we structured our promotions and events along those lines.
But the people have spoken and we have listened.”
This comes after online outrage for veteran nuts vendor, Keith “Jumbo” Martin was barred from selling at the Queen’s Park Oval.

The company said it will now partially waive its paid exclusive rights and allow local nuts vendors to ply their trade at the games.
Sunshine Snacks is an official sponsor of the T20 cricket Caribbean Premier League and the Trinbago Knight Riders (TKR).
