MRF offers rice subsidy scheme in Yangon Region

Myanmar Rice Federation (MRF) offers a rice subsidy scheme that affiliated associations, depots, and rice companies run. The consumers can buy rice at an affordable price of Aemahta rice — K3,000 per pyi.
This scheme currently covers 58 retail shops in 18 townships: Hlinethaya, Shwepyitha, South Dagon, North Okkalapa, North Dagon, Dagon Seikkan, East Dagon, Hmawby, Thingangyun, Thakayta, Pazundaung, Dawbon, Dala, Kyimyindine, Ahlon, Seikkyi Khanaungto, Mingaladon and Insein. Additionally, civil service personnel and factory and company staff can buy them by contacting the MRF.
Under the guidance of the MRF, Myanmar Rice and Paddy Traders Association, export companies and depots worked together to stabilize the price and initiated the rice subsidy scheme in order for the low-income people and civil servants to buy the rice at fairer prices at 58 retail shops in 18 townships, Yangon Region.  Consumers can purchase reasonably well-milled (15 per cent broken) white rice. An individual is entitled to buy two pyi at a time.
