Jumbo ‘gt’ with Sunshine Snacks…local nuts vendors allowed to sell at CPL games

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).
