MYANMAR Rice Federation (MRF) and its affiliated associations sold about 5,000 rice bags at a fairer price in Yangon Region, MRF stated.
This scheme is implemented by MRF, Myanmar Rice and Paddy Traders Association, rice wholesale centre (Wahdan), traders and brokers, with a view to offering the rice at a fairer price starting from 14 September 2021. About 5,000 108-pound rice bags have been sold as of 20 October 2021.
Ayeyawady Pawsan, Shwebo Pawsan, Pawkywel, short matured rice varieties (90 days) and sticky rice are being sold at a cheaper price between K23,500 and K54,000 per bag.
About one to five 108-pounds bags can be individually purchased. Those who want to buy them can come and buy at the Wahdan rice wholesale centre located at No 100 between Lanthit and Wahdan Street, Port Compound, Lanmadaw Township, Yangon through the contact numbers (09421167474 and 01218266-68) of the centre.
The Ministry of Commerce, Myanmar Inspection and Testing Service (MITS), the authorized organization of the State and MRF implemented a rice reserve scheme last year and sold the reserved rice at a fairer price than the prevailing price.
The state’s emergency rice reserve is to ensure food security, keep the price stable in the domestic market, protect the farmer’s interest at harvest time, continue to export them regularly and lessen the worries of the consumers during the COVID-19. — NN/GNLM
