The new maximum chicken price considers the interests of all parties

Posted on

KUALA BERANG, 26 Zulkaedah 1443H, Sunday “The maximum price for the new chicken to be announced tomorrow has taken into account the interests of consumers and traders in a balanced way,” said Deputy Minister of Domestic Trade and Consumer Affairs (KPDNHEP), Datuk Rosol Wahid.

He said, although there is a possibility of a slight increase, it is seen as a mutually beneficial situation between consumers and the livestock industry players.

“KPDNHEP through its enforcement officers always monitors to ensure supply and stability of chicken prices in the market,” he said after inaugurating the 15th General Meeting of the Imam Bilal Mukim Association of Hulu Terengganu Branch, here today.

According to Rosol, his party is also investigating a handful of farmers, wholesalers and retailers who charge additional fees including fishing wages, wage deductions, and plastic fees to burden consumers.

He said that his party admitted that they had to charge additional fees to ensure business continuity because of various other costs that must be borne at this time.

“However, we will investigate further and look from several angles to ensure the truth of their allegations,” he said.

Meanwhile, said Rosol, his party is also aware of the scarcity of one kilogram (kg) package oil in the market and has submitted an application to the Ministry of Finance to increase the package oil quota to overcome the problem.

“Currently, the government supplies 60,000 tons of subsidized cooking oil per month and we ask for an additional 10,000 tons per month to solve the community’s problems.

“However, it depends on the state’s financial capacity. We hope the Ministry of Finance will look at the application in detail,” he said. Named
