THE new maximum price for chicken, which will be announced tomorrow, takes into account the interests of consumers and traders, said Domestic Trade and Consumer Affairs Deputy Minister Rosol Wahid.
He said although there was a possibility of a slight increase in the new maximum price, it was a win-win situation between consumers and players in the livestock industry.
“The ministry, through its enforcement personnel, always monitors the supply of chicken in the market and stability of its price,” he told reporters after opening the 15th general meeting of the Hulu Terengganu branch of the Persatuan Imam Bilal Mukim in Kuala Berang today.
Rosol said the ministry was also investigating claims of some breeders, wholesalers and retailers who imposed additional charges, such as for catching, cutting and plastic packaging costs on consumers.
In another development, he said the ministry was aware of the shortage of one kilogram packet cooking oil in the market and that the ministry had applied to the Finance Ministry to increase the quota to overcome the problem.
“Currently, the government supplies 60,000 tonnes of subsidised cooking oil a month and we are asking for an additional 10,000 tonnes a month to solve the people’s problems,” he added. – Bernama, June 26, 2022.
