“Didds Gas is Eco-friendly which means it contained less amount of sulfur, nitrogen, and other matters which are known to be harmful – affecting the environment.
“I want to make mention also that – in scientific terms – the Didds Gas contains more propane than Butane which means the gas will become more harmless, much safer and easier to use than other gases which have more Butane than Propane,” Mrs. Molea Chow stated.

“Some people can’t afford current prices of a gas bottle in the country, we as a 100% Locally owned entity, we want to bring down prices so that we can give people a variety of options to choose from when it comes to purchasing gas for cooking in the country,” Mrs. Molea Chow stated.
