Myanmar Edible Oil Dealers’ Association (MEODA) will provide online service while seeking the association’s approval to apply for export and import licence during the Covid-19 crisis.
This move aims to prevent person-to-person contact and slow the spread of the virus. Regarding the online service, the documents must be sent to [email protected] and office Viber (959 444437295) in pdf or jpeg format. The fund can be paid to the association’s fund account (KBZ- 005-304-00501821101, AGD- 3040202000034019).
The association has urged the public not to make panic buying to maintain the stability of the cooking oil market.
There is self-sufficiency in the market with local production and imports from foreign countries. The association is trying to ensure the supply and maintain fair price, it stated on 19 March.
To ensure the adequate supply in the local market, the import of quality palm oil is being processed. Palm oil producers — Malaysia and Indonesia — are regularly operating their oil mills and conducting export process.
MEODA strictly adheres to the health guidelines by the Ministry of Health and Sports. It will release real-time information of edible oil milling, import and distribution. — GNLM (Translated by Ei Myat Mon)
