Fama records RM122mil sales in less than two months

JOHOR BARU: The Federal Agricultural Marketing Authority (Fama) recorded sales of RM122mil through outlets under its supervision from Sept 1 to Oct 18, 2021.

Fama director-general Datuk Zainal Bidin Yang Razali said the network of 368 outlets nationwide has provided benefits to more than 12,131 entrepreneurs and also 2.26 million customers who buy their agrofood products at these outlets.

He said the opening of a chain of outlets adopting standard operating procedures (SOPs) set by the National Security Council was a positive indicator as the sales and profit achieved had surpassed the initial target set by Fama.

The reopening of all Fama outlets included 35 ‘pasar tani kekal’, 266 farmers markets, 19 fresh fruit stalls, five agrobazaaar outlets at R&R areas, as well as five pasar tamu (weekly market).

“Initially, we targeted to open 241 outlets, however, up to Oct 18, we have opened 368 outlets. In terms of the number of entrepreneurs, we are targeting 6,000 entrepreneurs,that’s the target until December, we have offered opportunities but as of last Monday, more than 12,000 entrepreneurs have carried out the business.

“As for sales value, we are aiming for RM200mil until Dec 31 via these outlets but we have achieved RM122mil as of last Monday, hence, we feel by year-end, we are able to achieve more than what we target,” he said on Saturday. — Bernama
