TADCO warns of ice shortage in Tobago

Tobago Agribusiness Development Company Limited (TADCO) has advised of a potential ice shortage on the island.

In a statement, TADCO, one of the major providers of ice supply solutions, acknowledged the challenges posed by the current dry season and subsequent scheduling of water supplies.

It said that combined with the company’s depleted tank farm reserves, heightened demands due to the suspension and reduced services by competitors may impact ice supply in the coming weeks.

“The dry season has presented unprecedented challenges, affected water availability and consequently impacted our production processes. Despite our best efforts to mitigate these challenges, the situation is beyond the control of the company. We understand the importance of ice supply to our customers,” the release said.

It added that while there are external factors that may affect operations, the company remains committed to monitoring the situation closely and taking necessary steps to meet the needs of its customers to the best of its ability.

“TADCO assures its customers that every effort is being made to maintain continuity of service during this time. However, customers may experience minor disruptions or delays in ice supply due to the prevailing circumstances.”
