Sept. 18, 2019
A fair price shop was opened within the factory premises of Dutch-Bangla Pack Ltd. (DBP)L. The shop was inaugurated on 18th September 2019 by the Honorable Ambassador of the Kingdom of the Netherlands to Bangladesh, Mr. Harry Verweij.
The so-called Happy Shop, with 1,300 square feet of floor space, runs a fair price retail system exclusively for the employees of DBPL, selling packaged and non-packaged food and other household items to workers at up to 10% less than the retail price in the market. The company employees are able to purchase goods on credit, which are paid back by deducting from their salaries. In addition to allowing the workers to save on goods they already buy, the scheme also provides free healthcare benefits to the employees.
