KOTA BARU: Forty-eight supermarkets in the state have been ordered to limit the purchase of subsidised cooking oil to only 2kg per customer within the next two weeks.

The order that came from the Kelantan branch of Domestic Trade, Cooperatives and Consumerism Ministry was to overcome the current shortage of cooking oil in the market.

Its director Datuk Ab Ghani Harun said the order, which was issued after a meeting yesterday, took effect immediately.

“During the two weeks, we will monitor and station our officers at the supermarkets to ensure the compliance and effectiveness of the move,” he told reporters.

Ab Ghani warned stern action would taken against individuals found to have purchased cooking oil in large quantity without valid reasons. — Bernama
