Peter and Company Distribution was an integral part of last Saturday’s Saint Lucia Chamber of Commerce, Industry and Agriculture Awards held at the Johnsons Centre. Starting with the Cable and Wireless Business Red Carpet, followed by the Awards Ceremony and concluding with the “After Party”, the company wove a seamless thread of excitement, using several of its products to engage invitees. Some of these brands included Barefoot and Hardy’s wines, De Kuyper, Stoli Vodka, Johnnie Walker Double Black and Hennessy. To top it off, Moët Champagne toasted the winners and was a corporate sponsor of the awards itself.

Peter and Company Distribution would also like to congratulate the Chamber on the staging of another successful event as well as all of the winners as they continue to chart the way forward towards continued excellence in the business community.
