PUTRAJAYA: The ceiling price for general purpose flour has been raised by 15 sen per kilogramme in the peninsula and by 10 sen per kg in Sabah and Sarawak. With the increase, which took effect on Monday, the price of flour is now RM1.35 per kg in the peninsula and RM1.45 in Sabah and Sarawak.
The price hike comes after repeated requests by flour millers, who have been complaining about the rising costs of wheat and shipping over the past decade.
“We don’t want food outlets and others to take advantage of this announcement by raising the price of roti canai or noodles.
“A price hike of one or two sen is okay but it must be in proportion to the price increase for each kilogramme. Surely you don’t use one kilogramme of flour to make one roti canai,” Shafie said.
No!!! Knowing businessmen in Malaysia, I think an increase of 10-20 sen is here to come… (;_;)
