CHUKAI, June 13 (Bernama) -- The Federal Agricultural Marketing Authority (FAMA) will organise the Aidiladha Semarak Sale in 685 locations nationwide this weekend.

Its deputy director-general, Faisal Iswardi Ismail said this programme is to help the people, especially Muslims, make preparations in conjunction with Aidiladha.

He said the programme is expected to be launched by FAMA director-general Abdul Rashid Bahri at the Tunjong Rural Transformation Centre (RTC) in Kota Bharu, Kelantan tomorrow.

"The national-level Aidiladha Semarak Sale programme will be launched tomorrow at the RTC Tunjong, Kelantan,"  he said when met by reporters at the MADANI Agro Carnival in the permanent farmers’ market (PTK) in Chukai, Kemaman today..

"We aim to offer prices which will be between 10 and 30 per cent cheaper than the market prices.” 

In the meantime, Faisal Iswardi said FAMA also is organising the three-day MADANI Agro Carnival at six PTK locations nationwide to help the people buy food and necessities at lower prices too.

According to him, these include three programmes on the East Coast namely the Chukai PTK in Terengganu; Chini PTK, Pahang; and Tunjong PTK in Kelantan, with a sales target of RM1.2 million.

He said this carnival brings together various FAMA entrepreneurs, contract farming programme participants, agri-based entrepreneurs and popular food entrepreneurs throughout the country.

"The MADANI Agro Carnival differs slightly from the MADANI Agro Sale as it is held in PTKs. Consumers can obtain lower prices of up to 30 per cent in this progamme,” he also said.

"After this we will tour two other locations namely the Datin Halimah PTK in Johor Bharu and Changlun PTK in Kedah in stages until July 27.”
