APPRECIATION FOR BROILER PRICE ADJUSTMENT FOR THE FESTIVAL SEASON BY THE GOVERNMENT
佳节肉鸡顶价调回

Last updated: 02/03/15

The Federation of Livestock Farmers’ Associations of Malaysia (FLFAM) would like to express its appreciation to the Government of Malaysia through the Ministry of Domestic Trade and Consumer Affairs for reverting to the year round retail ceiling price of RM6.00 per kilogram for standard chicken during the coming festival season. Chicken has been a price controlled item since 1998 and the present ceiling price of RM6.00 per kilogram has been in force since October 2004.

The poultry producers has not been able to agree to the ceiling price being lowered to RM5.60 per kilogram for the festival season as the industry has been suffering an escalation of cost of production since the beginning of 2006. The increase in cost of production is a global phenomena caused by the historical high prices of corn, soybean, wheat and other ingredients that has caused the increase in the local compound feed price.

Despite the fact that our production cost is higher than the current ceiling price and as a response to the government’s urges, the FLFAM would like to assure consumers, especially the general public that there will be sufficient chicken supply for the current festival season at the present ceiling price, but as the cost of production has already exceeded present ceiling price and may further increase in the near future, it will be forced to seek the approval for an increase in the ceiling price from the government after the festive season. The FLFAM had in July this year submitted its memorandum to the government making request for the review of ceiling price of chicken and would like to urge the government to seriously look into it.

The industry is thankful to the Government for their understanding of our situation and we hope it will allow us to continue to play our role as a supplier of protein food at reasonable prices to the consumers by making sure of its continued viability and sustainability. (13 Sept 2007)

马来西亚禽畜业联合总会感谢政府通过国内贸易与消费人事务部,把即将来临佳节的标准肉鸡零售价顶价重新调回原本的常年顶价每公斤RM6.00。肉鸡是自1998年成为统制品,而目前的顶价RM6.00是在2004年10月便开始实施。

家禽业不同意把佳节的肉鸡顶价调低至每公斤RM5.60 是因为家禽业正蒙受2006初以来生产成本节节高涨之苦。生产成本的提高是因为全球的玉米,大豆,小麦等原料价格攀升至有史以来最高水平,使到本地混合饲料价格也暴涨。

尽管成本比目前的顶价还要高,但为了响应政府的号召,本会向消费人,特别是普罗大众保证佳节的肉鸡供应充足。然而,由于成本已经超过顶价,而且还会上涨,逼使本会不得不在佳节过后寻求政府批准以提高顶价。本会在7月间已向政府提呈备忘录要求检讨肉鸡顶价,希望政府慎重考虑之。

家禽业感谢政府谅解我们的处境,让我们得以生存以便继续以合理价格供应肉鸡这种蛋白质丰富的食物给消费人。
