New DDL chairman takes up office
Samaroo said with the new position increasing international sales for DDL and encouraging responsible drinking at local retailers are just some of the areas he plans to look at.
Dr. Persaud said when he took over the company in 1975 it was facing financial problems. He believes as the responsibilities are being handed over to his successor the company is in a better profit making position.
Dr. Yesu Persaud has served at the Demerara Distillers Limited for over 48 years. He has led the company in becoming the only manufacturer and exporter of bulk rum. DDL is known for its El Dorado Rums and over the years has maintained the status of the World’s Best Rum.
