SHAH ALAM, July 18 (Bernama) -- Pasar tani at 32 locations nationwide will
be offering discounts of 30 to 50 per cent on kitchen essentials during the
Ramadan fasting month expected to begin this Saturday.
Selangor Federal Agricultural Marketing Authority (Fama) Director Mansor
Omar told Bernama the discounts, for fish, vegetables, fruits and other items,
will be launched at the pasar tani in Section 17, Petaling Jaya by Fama Chairman
Tan Sri Badruddin Amiruldinare.
The ''Save on Kicthen Expenses'' programme was introduced last year, and in
April offered five types of fish -- pelaling, cencaru, kembung, selar and
selayang -- at five to 15 per cent less than market prices.
Supplies of coconuts, chicken and meat are still sufficient for Ramadan and
Hari Raya, Mansor said.
On Monday, Fama Director-General Ahmad Ishak said the discounts at the
selected pasar tani will be offered every day during Ramadan from 2pm to
breaking of fast.
