Sugar cannot be sold with conditions, says Armizan

PETALING JAYA: Action will be taken against those who add stipulations for the sale of sugar, says the Domestic Trade and Cost of Living Ministry.

In an engagement session with the Companies Commission of Malaysia (SSM) in Johor, acting Minister Datuk Armizan Mohd Ali said no conditions can be attached to sugar sale.

“We urge consumers to report the matter to us so that action can be taken,” Armizan was quoted as saying by Sinar Harian.

He added that complaints will be handled promptly.

He was asked in response to a raid at a business premises in Perak that saw the sale of sugar with conditions.

In a statement on Saturday (Aug 26), the ministry’s Perak branch director Datuk Kamalludin Ismail said a business premises in Batu Gajah was raided for selling coarse sugar with conditions.

It was found that the sugar was sold at RM2.85 per packet and buyers were required to purchase an additional 1kg white sugar at RM4.50 a pack.
