In saying this, its minister Datuk Salahuddin Ayub today ensured there would be enough food supply, stating that there wouldn't be any case of short of supply.
“Don't worry, don't panic and don't believe false information that supply is short because we have more than enough this festive season.
“In fact, we are also ready if there were to be any shortage" he said when met together with Domestic Trade and Consumer Affairs (KPDNHEP) minister Datuk Seri Saifuddin Nasution at the announcement of the festive season price control scheme earlier.
He said major food supply such as meat, chicken, eggs fish, coconut, vegetables and fruits would be enough to cater to the needs and demands of the people during the celebration.
“To help people get quality goods at a competitive price, the ministry will carry out programmes such as 'Jimat Belanja Aidilfitri @Pasar Tani' for five days before Hari Raya at selected farmers’ market in the country.
“Various food items will be sold at much cheaper price than market price,” he added.
Apart from that, food supply could also be obtained at outlets under the ministry such as MyFarm, Pasar Komuniti (PAKAR), Agrobazaar Rakyat, My Best Buy, and Rural Transformation Centres (RTC).
