Sugar industry reduces sugar price to help gov’t curb rising inflation

In support of the Duterte administration’s call for businesses to help address the rising inflation, the sugar industry, with the support of the Universal Robina Corporation (URC) through its Sugar division, is making available sugar at reduced prices. URC’s sugar products are available under the Robinsons Supermarket’s house brand Supersavers in all of the supermarket chain’s 160 branches nationwide.
