Cameron Highlands, Malaysia

Vegetable prices up 30 to 40% following enhanced movement control order

Prices of vegetables from the Cameron Highlands have gone up by 40 per cent, after the enhanced movement control order (EMCO) was enforced in several areas there. Other types of vegetables expected to see price increases include tomatoes, Japanese cucumbers, chillies, cabbages, beans, sweet peppers and all types of salad leaves.

The increase was due to an immediate halt to production, as 12,000 local and foreign workers there were not allowed to leave home for work under the EMCO. According to Federation of Malaysian Vegetable Growers Associations secretary-general Chay Ee Mong, supply will be affected as Cameron Highlands produces 565 tons of vegetables daily.
