The Consumers’ Association of Penang (CAP) calls on the Ministry of Domestic Trade, Co-operatives and Consumerism and Federal Agricultural Marketing Authority (FAMA) to take immediate steps to bring down the price of vegetables which has increased up to 350% during this Ramadan month.
The Following prices listed below give the comparative price
CAP calls on the Enforcement Division of the Ministry of Domestic Trade, Co-operatives and Consumerism to investigate the above price increases as average income earners will be badly effected by escalating price of goods especially in this Ramadan month.
CAP has also been repeatedly calling for FAMA to take control of the marketing and distribution of vegetables in the country but our call has fallen on deaf ears.
