NFM shareholders are allegedly demanding the removal of chairperson Jacqueline Burgess over her refusal to raise the price of flour.
Shareholder Anthony Arundel was quoted in the Trinidad Express as criticizing the NFM board for not being “business-like” since it didn’t “seem very willing” to raise the price of flour or focus on making a profit for shareholders. Arundel called it “political thinking.”
It appears that customer satisfaction is a low priority for run of the mill businessmen. But who would think that political thinking might feasibly substitute for caring?
Wired868 cannot confirm that the NFM shareholders’ business motto is: “the customer is always right… about to be screwed.”
Arundel might prefer: “the lighter the dough, the faster you go.”
