Govt Sets New Chicken Ceiling Price At RM9.40 Per KG

PETALING JAYA: The new ceiling price of standard chicken has been set at RM9.40 per kilogramme, says Datuk Seri Dr Ronald Kiandee.

In a statement Wednesday (June 29), the Agriculture and Food Industries Minister said the Cabinet also decided that the retail price of Grade A eggs will be set at 45 sen each; Grade B (43 sen) and Grade C (41 sen).

The new prices will take effect on Friday (July 1).

The ceiling price for standard chicken was previously set at RM8.90 per kg in Peninsular Malaysia, and was slated to be removed on July 1.

"Rising prices are not only affecting Malaysia but are a global phenomena due to supply chain disruptions caused by geopolitical conflict and climate change.

“The government is taking all efforts to set the price control mechanisms to ensure the Malaysian Family is not burdened by rising costs of living,” he said.
