PUTRAJAYA: The Domestic Trade and Cost of Living Ministry has guaranteed a sufficient supply of chickens and eggs throughout the month of Ramadan.

It said farm operators, through the Federation of Livestock Farmers Association of Malaysia (FLFAM), had given an assurance that there would be a sufficient supply of chicken meat and eggs.

It has also held engagement sessions with the Finance Ministry, the Agriculture and Food Security Ministry, the Veterinary Services Department, the Malaysian Quarantine and Inspection Services Department, as well as the producers represented by FLFAM to ensure the issue of supply and price of chicken and eggs were dealt with holistically.

“The producers have also expressed a commitment that they will work with the ministry to deal with any issue of supply disruptions in the country by immediately channelling supplies to any locations that face disruption,” it said in a statement yesterday.

The statement added that, based on enforcement statistics regarding the implementation of the Maximum Price Control Scheme of Chicken and Eggs from Feb 5, 2022 until yesterday, the ministry had carried out 183,047 inspections nationwide and taken action in 2,711 cases with total fines of RM482,400.

Offences included selling above the control price and failure to tag prices. — Bernama
