The retailer formerly known as Tesco, Lotus’s Malaysia, has come out strong for their Raya campaign, proudly maintaining their chicken prices at RM5.99 per kilo despite reports of prices skyrocketing 6 times in April 2021.

Lotus’s states that it is working hard to ensure that customers can still get their Raya staples of rendang and satay with imported Brazil beef (RM11.89 per pack), Australia Bone-in Lamb Leg (RM27.39 per kilo), as well as Lotus’s essentials mainstay, whole chicken at RM5.99 per kilogram.

New Straits Times reported traders stating that the price of fresh chicken in the Klang Valley has increased about six times in April alone. Authorities in several states have begun taking stern action following the drastic rise of chicken prices to an eye-watering RM9.50 per kilogram at markets since the start of Ramadan.

Some suppliers said the price hike was due to breeders having to sustain increases in imported feed prices of up to 40%.
