The oil millers from Kyaukpadaung township bought the raw products from Pakokku and Seikphyu townships. The groundnut prices from those regions are sold at K3,075 per viss.

Due to the rising of edible oil prices in Kyaukpadaung township, Mandalay Region, oil millers are operating their businesses depending on the raw pulses, said an edible oil miller.
This year, more raw products are imported than last year. So, the millers operated day and night shifts depending on the accessibility of electricity.
There are many oil mills in Kyaukpadaung township. Some are owned large oil mills while some are owned small businesses and some are working on a manageable scale. But they have ground the edible crops this year than last year. The grinding charge of pulses is K200 per viss. About 100 visses of pulses can produce 42 visses of pulse oil.
The oil millers have to grind about 20 bags of sesame (one and a half baskets per bag) and 80 bags of groundnut per day depending on the accessibility of electricity.
“The price of edible oil in the domestic market is unstable. Now, the price of groundnut fetched K3,000 per viss and the groundnut oil are ranging between K5,800-K6,200 per viss. The sesame price is sold for K6,500 per viss. We are selling about 480 visses of groundnut oil and 40 visses of sesame oil per day. Sesame oil is not used for fried things. Currently, both sesame and pulses are not entered our region. Now, we are grinding the pulses conveyed from the west. Now, we are working day and night shift because of power problem,” said an oil miller from Zaykwatthit ward, Kyaukpadaung township.
The oil millers from Kyaukpadaung township bought the raw products from Pakokku and Seikphyu townships. The groundnut prices from those regions are sold at K3,075 per viss. Then, the ground finished products are mainly conveyed to Yangon. — Ko Nay (Kyaukpadaung)/GNLM
