Before I became vegan, I used to love the Ramsaran's Peanut Punch and milk drinks. I never cared for the orange juice and I don't know if they made any other food related item as my main interest was the Ramsaran's milk brand which at the time tasted really good for me. I used to like the fact that Ramsaran's had a natural taste that was not as artificial as other brands. Of course, now, I do not support the dairy industry in any form including retailers but not for the reason I am writing this - that is another topic.
Ramsaran's is a veteran name brand that has existed ever since I was child long before Nestle and other brands flooded the market. Now, it looks as if their business is falling into a pit.
There has been an outcry on social media that made its way unto the national news platform arising out of a recent statement made by Naila Ramsaran, allegedly a close relative of the owners of Ramsaran's, for her racist comments as follows:
"Given these unfortunate developments, we have taken urgent and active steps to part ways with the employee and author of the subject comments and statements, the content of which cannot and will not be tolerated by us.
"While the said employee cannot speak on our behalf, even by association, we must unreservedly extend our apologies nationwide and to all those who have been impacted by the statements which were utterly unacceptable and reprehensible." Source 7v.
I heard people online posting all kinds of nasty criminal intentions against the family and the business. People, don't lose perspective, something bad was done by ONE person connected to the business. They have made an apology, the business made an apology and they are already being hurt by the actions of the supermarket. Now we move on! We still have to worry about crime, COVID-19 and keeping we jobs!
Now, the situation is even worse. That’s why immediately following the election, public attention has turned to the pressing matter of taking screen shots of racist trolls on Facebook and then self-righteously shaming them. In fact, this endeavour appears to be turning into a national pastime, alongside calypso and limbo. Source 3p.
