HUGGINS Grenada pilots first Digital EC Cash Transaction in the ECCU
Published: March 9th, 2021
: Another bold step in the advancement of
Digital technology has been made in the Eastern Caribbean Currency Union as George
F. Huggins & Company (Grenada) Limited became the first company in history to
carry out a financial transaction using the ECCB’s Digital EC Dollars or “DCash”.
the watchful gaze of shoppers, Chief Executive Officer of Huggins, Mrs. Anya
Chow Chung, completed the historic digital transaction at the company’s Foodland
Supermarket on Kirani James Boulevard on Friday, 12th February
effectively becoming the first person in the Union and in Grenada ever to use
the new digital currency. Huggins is
part of a wider pilot program spearheaded by the ECCB to begin the roll-out of
its DCash program in Grenada and several other Eastern Caribbean territories. The
DCash Pilot is a key initiative of the ECCB’s transformational agenda as
articulated in their 2017-2021 Strategic Plan.
Chung said, “Digital history has been made today at Foodland and I am extremely
proud to represent George F. Huggins & Company (Grenada) Limited and to
have had the privilege to ‘cut the ribbon’ as it were in the use of this
emerging digital technology in Grenada and the wider ECCU region. This is indeed a proud moment for our
country! DCash will give our customers
another option to access their cash quickly and easily through their mobile
devices and eventually to conveniently shop at our outlets and stores around
Grenada. This is especially timely, as
we all search for ways to conduct business safely during this pandemic. By reducing the need to physically handle
cash, DCash will provide customers with another layer of safety as we all learn
to live in the ‘new normal’ created by the global COVID-19 pandemic.”
of the ECCB, Timothy J. Antoine said “This
transaction is a major milestone in our mission to place DCash in the hands of
the people of the Eastern Caribbean Currency Union (ECCU). I congratulate George
F. Huggins & Company (Grenada) Limited on making history. We are now on the cusp of the public launch of
DCash. Get ready.”
over 500 employees, and 17 distinct business operations across Grenada, Huggins
is the largest locally owned company on the island and has been proudly serving
Grenadians for over 100 years.
In marking the historic digital moment, Mrs. Chow Chung recognised Foodland Store Manager, Ms. Genita Pysadee, Cashier, Mr. Trent Graham and Customer Service Representative, Mr. Junior George who all helped to make the first use of digital EC dollars in Grenada a smooth, efficient and successful process.
