Malaysian Domestic Trade and Consumer Affairs Ministry:

Malaysia: ‘Vegetables sold cheaper than last month’

The Domestic Trade and Consumer Affairs Ministry has refuted the allegations made by the Consumers’ Association of Penang (CAP) that the prices of several types of vegetables in Penang have increased. Its Penang director Mohd Ridzuan Ab Ghafar said that based on price monitoring and inspection conducted by its enforcement team, vegetables were sold at low and affordable prices by retailers.

Mohd Ridzuan Ab Ghafar: "What was reported in the CAP statement is inaccurate, it is possible that the CAP only targets one or two retailers. We have conducted price monitoring to obtain information from supermarkets and public market traders on the prices and supply of tomatoes, Chinese celery and coriander leaves, which allegedly increased during the fasting month. However, they were found to be sold cheaper than last month.”

Mohd Ridzuan said the ministry would continue to monitor prices and vegetable supply from growers and wholesalers to curb profiteering under the Price Control and Anti-Profiteering Act 2011.
