Malaysia’s poultry and egg producers settle prices


Poultry and egg producers in Malaysia have agreed on a reasonable margin in determining the retail prices of chicken and eggs. The Ministry of Domestic Trade and Consumer Affairs said it has secured cooperation from all industry players to review costs and profits at each stage of the supply chain. It added that the data from the ministry’s National Product Price Division showed that the national average price of dressed chicken was about USD 2.09/kg in mid-September compared to USD 2.40/kg two weeks earlier.
