Be considerate, don’t hike price, traders told

14th February, 2018

By JASON JACK EBIT

KOTA KINABALU: State Agriculture and Food Industry Minister, Datuk Seri Panglima Yahya Hussin has reminded traders not to take advantage to increase the price of food supplies during the festive season.

He also added that one of the factors that caused traders to take the opportunity to increase their price is because of the monsoon season.

“Some of them would take the advantage to hoard their supplies during the period and they sell it off at a higher price citing the bad weather.

“We must be considerate and not cause the people to suffer,” he said during the inauguration ceremony of Ko-Nelayan Board of Directors, at Wisma Pertanian, yesterday.

Yahya also advised the people especially those celebrating Chinese New Year to be wise when buying food products and to buy at reasonable prices.

When commenting on the food supplies shortage during the festive season, Yahya explained that the essentials in the state are still sufficient.

He further added that he did not receive any official complaint regarding the shortage of food supply thus far. On the shortage of pork, he added that he has yet to receive any official report on the matter.

He disclosed that the influx of Chinese tourists might affect the pork supply in the state.

“But this would not affect the supply of pork in Sabah that much,” he said while adding that if the state experiences any shortage of supplies, it can always rely on imported products.

He also stated that there are plans to set up a pig farm at, Telupid to overcome the shortage of pork.
