Floral industry set to ‘bloom’ again

PETALING JAYA: The floral industry is now allowed to operate during the ongoing lockdown, says Datuk Seri M. Saravanan.

In a video on his Facebook page, the Human Resources Minister said the National Security Council had decided to allow the floral industry to operate as of yesterday after listening to the plight of flower farmers who had to dump their harvest, and small-time flower traders who have lost their source of income since June 1.

He said religious bodies have also called for the reopening of floral businesses.

“The government has granted permission for the sale of flowers for religious and cultural purposes.

“I urge all flower farmers and traders to get in touch with their local Agriculture and Food Industry offices for the SOP,” he said.
