KUALA LUMPUR – The cabinet’s decision to continue the present subsidies for standard chicken yesterday, received various reactions from poultry associations despite the rise in retail ceiling prices from RM8.90/kg to RM9.40.

The decision, which comes into effect tomorrow, also saw the government deciding not to float the prices of chicken.

Federation of Livestock Farmers’ Associations of Malaysia (FLFAM) adviser Datuk Jeffery Ng Choon Ngee said the newly announced prices will not adversely affect poultry farmers as it is the price that is being sold to consumers at present.

However, he reiterated that the association is waiting for the subsidy rates proposed by the government through the Agriculture and Food Industries Ministry (Mafi) following the announcement.
