    KOTA KINABALU: The Domestic Trade and Cost of Living Ministry is taking steps to address future shortages of subsidised cooking oil by implementing a rationalisation process in the allocation of quotas. Domestic Trade and Cost of Living Minister Datuk Seri Salahuddin Ayub announced that this move is crucial to ensuring a fair distribution of subsidised cooking oil at all levels. The ministry has proactively initiated this process after receiving feedback from visits to various companies engaged in repackaging subsidised cooking oil across the country.

    Salahuddin emphasised the need to review the overall distribution process of packet subsidised cooking oil to avoid any disruptions or shortages. During a visit to a factory involved in repackaging subsidised cooking oil in Kota Kinabalu on Sunday (July 9), he stated, “The time has come for the ministry to examine the distribution process thoroughly. This will help prevent shortages and ensure a fair allocation of subsidised cooking oil in the future.”

    As part of this initiative, the ministry is performing a comprehensive study and audit to evaluate the capabilities and capacities of factories engaged in the repackaging of subsidised cooking oil. Salahuddin revealed that the allocation and distribution of subsidised cooking oil will be carried out fairly and under close supervision. He added, “In areas where additional supply or quota is required, we will increase it to address future shortages.”

    For Sabah, Salahuddin acknowledged the shortage of factories involved in repackaging subsidised cooking oil as a contributing factor to the supply shortfall. However, the ministry is committed to resolving this issue and ensuring a fair distribution process at all levels in Sabah. Speaking specifically about Kota Kinabalu, he said, “There are only a few factories engaged in repackaging subsidised cooking oil in the area. Consequently, transportation costs and time taken to transport supplies from Sandakan are high. Therefore, we will strive to ensure a fair distribution of subsidised cooking oil and resolve this issue promptly.”
