StarKist 5 week shutdown will cost the Samoan government millions

With an estimated 7% loss in local revenues for the government due to the upcoming five-week closure of StarKist Samoa cannery operations, Gov. Lolo Matalasi Moliga has advised directors of all ASG departments and agencies to “practice diligence in expending local funds”.

Pittsburgh-based StarKist Co., confirmed Tuesday that its cannery operations in American Samoa will shut down for five weeks, Oct. 21st to Nov. 26th, for upgrades and to install new equipment.

The StarKist Samoa plant is expected to re-open Nov. 27th.

The temporary shutdown comes at the start of the government's new fiscal year 2018, which begins Oct. 1, 2017.

In a memo Tuesday afternoon, Lolo informed directors about the notice received from StarKist regarding the 5-week closure of the cannery plant, saying that he brings this issue to their attention “because of the financial implications on the revenue posture of the government.”

1. I wonder how much smaller the cans are going to get this time

The staple of a Catholic childhood has now become a rare treat out of a really tiny can.

The new cans should be downright hilarious.
