A Bernama report published on Wednesday was based on a memo issued by a farm in Merlimau, Jasin to suppliers notifying them that chicken supply would be stopped on May 21 and 22 because the chickens failed to reach the required weight. The media reported that a group of poultry industry cartels had planned to close farms for two days to protest against the government’s delay in subsidy payment. "The hall is also for the purpose of organising events," he said.

So, when the supply of the brand they favour runs low, they start to complain about a flour shortage,” she said. On the logo launch today, Nanta said the logo will make it easier for subsidised and controlled goods to be detected in market circulation to avoid the products from being misappropriated by irresponsible parties.
