Donors invited for distribution of Shan goods under MFVP arrangement

Myanmar Fruit, Flower & Vegetable Producer and Exporter Association (MFVP) will arrange if anyone contacts them to buy and donate Shan goods, said U Kyaw Thu, the secretary of MFVP.
“We will arrange for those who wish to donate Shan goods if they contact us. We will also calculate the transport costs and the amount to buy goods from Shan State. They can donate to any place and people. If they don’t know whom to donate where we will arrange for them as well,” he said.
Currently, the farmer trucks (Taungthu Zaykar) supervised by our MFVP are selling the crops and vegetables in four townships — South Dagon, Hlinethaya, South Okkalapa and Thingangyun starting from 14 October, he added.
The two farmer trucks are selling various vegetables such as rosselle, spinach, gourd, water convolvulus, cauliflower and Chinese cabbage of the local farmers from Mawbi, Taikkyi and Mingalardon townships.
Moreover, they will sell tomato, potato, chilli, cabbage and onion from Shan State with the set price of local farmers.
The farmer trucks will sell those vegetables in the restricted areas of those townships and arrange for people to buy the vegetables safely. People are not allowed to purchase the vegetables if they do not wear masks, according to MFVP.
Moreover, the vegetables have already been packed for K500 or K1,000. The price will be clearly displayed. The buyers need to drop the money in the cash box, and there will be no change. The vegetable products will be brought back daily to the storage. Then, the remaining vegetables will be donated or sold at a discount price in the outskirts in the evening.
The Taungthu Zaykar was started in July by MFVP, and the service was stopped in September because of COVID-19. (Translated by Hay Mar)
