Examine Our Roots
It is said that the journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step; likewise, our journey spanning forty plus years, taking us across five industry sectors and countless like-minded individuals began in 1976 when Sakunti Ramnarine Singh established a small retail shop in Fyzabad, Trinidad.
Opened using just $2000 of capital acquired through the sale of her jewelry and prized cow, as well as small loans, this shop was run by family members and eventually by her young son, Anand Ramnarine Singh. Anand, CEO of the now-multi-million-dollar conglomerate, studied machine shop at school (a field which he ill-enjoyed) and helped in the shop when he graduated.
Eventually as more funds were acquired, with his winning combination of enthusiasm, imagination and integrity, he then further expanded the business by opening a mid-sized retail store on Uriah Butler Junction in Fyzabad. It was thus that the name Anand Low Price was born.
Sales quickly surpassed expectations; Anand wasn’t capable of handling the dramatic increase in work on his own so invited his elder brother Dianan to join him. Together they worked tirelessly, through what sometimes seemed like endless hours to get the job done. Unfortunately, just two years after Dianan joined the business, he tragically passed away in an accident.
Anand then made it his mission to continue the family business and develop it to the diversified conglomerate it is today. The Anand Low Price Group’s success was mainly derived from continuously reinvesting in properties which turned into commercial businesses and stock which appreciated tremendously over the years.

In each and every one of our businesses, we uphold the highest standards of professionalism. Our staff are offered equitable, safe, and healthy workplaces, the ideal environment to foster their career development. We pursue operational excellence in everything we do, priding ourselves on being forward-looking, innovative and original.
