MIRI, May 23 (Bernama) — The Ministry of Domestic Trade, Cooperatives and Consumerism (KPDNKK) will not increase the quota for the one-kg packet of subsidised cooking oil to meet the high demand during the coming Gawai Dayak festival and Ramadan in Sarawak.
Sarawak KPDNKK chief enforcement officer Abdul Hafidz A Rahim said consumers need not worry about any shortage despite an anticipated high demand for the one-kg packets of subsidised cooking oil.
“The current quota of 2,455 metric tons for Sarawak is still sufficient,” he told reporters after conducting a check on the Ramadan Price Control Scheme 2017 jointly with Miri KPDNKK enforcement officers at a supermarket here today.
He warned that the price of the one-kg packet of subsidised cooking oil remained at RM2.50 and legal action could be taken against those selling these products that surpassed the ceiling price.
On the Ramadan Price Control Price 2017 that was launched yesterday, he said all the 323 business premises in Sarawak checked so far were found to have complied with the scheme.
