Myanmar Rice Federation (MRF) will join hands with the rice millers, rice traders and companies to stabilize the rice price and steer the market for the right price and the right product and encourage the mill owners to achieve balance between the short term profits and long term interests, as per the MRF’s notification dated 24 April.
Individuals and family entities can contact the rice wholesale centres for fair prices and the right products. For any difficulties, please contact the office of the MRF, as per the statement.
Additionally, it will inspect the manipulators who spread malicious rumours on digital platforms to spark the concerns of the consumers and raise the rice prices for the sake of the long-term benefit of the rice industry. The federation will forward the reports to the relevant authorities. The stakeholders in the supply chain need to exert concerted efforts in this, MRF notified. — NN/EM
