Many people have made donations on Myanmar New Year Day, resulting in pork and chicken sales climbing up, according to the meat and fish retail market.

Most of Myanmar people traditionally make donations on New Year Day, therefore sale of meat and fish has climbed up, especially pork and chicken, which are the most served for Myanmar food donations, have been sold better.

“Today is Myanmar New Year Day, so two pigs were sold out now. The sale of pork and chicken is better on this morning. Retail price per viss is just K15000 at our shop while some have raised price these days,” said the owner of Atee meat and fish shop in Hlinethaya township.

Similarly, chicken sale has been good too and price has increased slightly, with many orders.

“Price gets high in Thingyan. Retail price is now K12000, up from K10000 a viss. It has been three days the price has been increasing. Both chicken and pork sales are good because today is Myanmar New Year Day,” he added.

On every New Year Day, people make new year donations and satuditha (food donation to all comers) in wards and villages, by either groups or families.
