CAPS QUERIES RAISED PRICE OF BREAD





By : DONNY YAPP TAI HUA

KOTA KINABALU : In respond to Gardenia's statement  issued in Kuala Lumpur yesterday (carried by Daily Express business page today) on there was no price hike in bread in the whole Peninsular, CAPS would like to ask the same why was there a hike in Sabah for the same food item.

This is unfair to Sabahan consumers who are already paying for a much higher prices of all other consumer products.

We want the authorities concerned to promptly look at things here to protect our consumers.

We have been receiving reports from Sabah consumers that there had been a price hike for Gardenia's bread in many towns in Sabah, some reaching 40 sen for a 600 gramme bread.

The 400 gram bread that previously cost RM2.70 is now being sold at RM3.00, while a 600 gramme bread that used to cost RM3.80 is now being sold at RM4.20.

CAPS continued to receive reports from across the state on the price hike. We do hope Gardenia would look into this matter so as not to burden Sabah consumers unnecessarily and unfairly.

We are providing Gardenia with samples or pictures of price tags that showed the difference of the prices, now and previously.

  1. Gardenia Nafi Khabar Angin Harga Naik

    Gardenia Bakeries (KL) Sdn Bhd, anak syarikat makanan yang di senarai di Singapura, QAF Ltd, pada Selasa menjelaskan bahawa harga produknya tidak dinaikkan.

    "Sudah lebih setahun Gardenia menjadi sasaran siri penipuan yang disebarkan oleh beberapa orang. Fitnah terbaharu ialah harga roti kami naik.

    "Ini fitnah semata-mata. Produk Gardenia di Semenanjung Malaysia tidak dinaikkan," kata Ketua Pegawai Eksekutifnya Yap Kim Shin, dalam satu kenyataan.

    Gardenia Bakeries (KL) Sdn Bhd beroperasi di Semenanjung Malaysia.

    Minggu lepas, pihak tidak bertanggungjawab menyebarkan khabar angin mengenai kenaikan harga roti Gardenia.

    Khabar angin ini bermula di Internet dan sejak itu tersebar luas dalam beberapa media perdana.

    Yap berkata harga produk Gardenia di Semenanjung Malaysia stabil sejak beberapa tahun dan syarikat itu menyerap kenaikan kos pengeluaran.

    "Syarikat itu yakin kenaikan harga hanya sebagai merupakan tindakan akhir jika semula aspek lain dalam meningkatkan kecekapan dan produktiviti, tidak dapat ditangani.

    "Penipuan dan fitnah ini bertujuan mensabotaj Gardenia. Kami memberi jaminan kepada pengguna bahawa khabar angin ini tidak benar sama sekali dan meminta pengguna mengesahkan kandungan yang dibaca di Internet.

    Harga produk Gardenia di senarai pada tag "kwik lok" dan/atau dicetak pada pembungkus.

    Pengguna dinasihatkan menyemak sendiri harga dan tidak mendengar atau menyebar maklumat palsu.

  2. INI PULA ADALAH BERKAITAN HARGA GAS DI SANDAKAN

    Pejabat Kementerian Perdagangan Dalam Negeri, Koperasi dan Kepenggunaan (KPDNKK) menafikan berlaku kenaikan harga gas memasak di daerah ini.

    Ketua pejabatnya di sini, Joe Azmi Jamil berkata, harga bahan itu masih pada kadar ditetapkan iaitu RM26.60 setong bagi berat 14 kilogram, dan mereka yang membeli pada harga lebih tinggi diminta membuat laporan kepada pihaknya.

    "Pengguna dinasihatkan agar tidak mendengar khabar angin dan mempercayainya lalu menghebahkannya.

    "Mereka sebaliknya diminta membuat laporan kepada pihak KPDNKK sekiranya mempunyai maklumat berhubung kenaikan harga barangan atau harga tidak berpatutan di kawasan masing-masing bagi memudahkan kami mengambil tindakan," katanya ketika dihubungi, hari ini.

    Azmi berkata pihaknya memantau kedai-kedai runcit yang menjual gas memasak bagi memastikan tidak ada pihak yang sewenang-wenangnya menaikkan harga bahan itu dan barangan terkawal lain.

    Beliau bagaimanapun tidak menolak kemungkinan pengguna dicaj harga lebih tinggi oleh peniaga kerana menggunakan khidmat penghantaran ke rumah.
