Yaadman Haulage says it is not involved with illegal cooking gas siteTuesday, June 15, 2021
KINGSTON, Jamaica — Cooking gas supplier Yaadman Haulage Jamaica Limited has sought to assure that it is not connected with an illegal cooking gas distribution site, which the police shutdown in Portmore, St Catherine last week.
Yaadman, which supplies cooking gas across several parishes, in a statement today asserted that it is “absolutely not connected” to the operation.
About 11:30 am last Friday, lawmen swooped down on the area where they reportedly observed two gas tankers along with a fully retrofitted space for refilling cooking gas cylinders.
The police said the space was fitted with pressure gauges, high-end scales and fire safety equipment.
The gas supplier noted that its cylinders were among several found at the location and expressed that only one entity is authorised to fill its cylinders.
Yaadman further stressed that it is not aware of how its cylinders made its way to Gregory Park and said it only became aware of the alleged illegitimate operation when reports surfaced in the media.
Group CEO of Yaadman, Garth Abiola said Yaadman commends the police on the probe and the entity's operations are able to withstand the highest levels of scrutiny.
The cooking gas supplier further expressed its commitment to supplying Jamaicans with quality cooking gas at an affordable rate.
