Slight drop in prices of vegetables as supply stabilizes

Vegetable prices in Johor have gone down slightly this month, compared to June and July. However, the current prices are still higher than they were in April and May. While the price of fresh red chillies from Cameron Highlands was about 20% cheaper, consumers in Johor preferred red chillies grown in Batu Pahat and Kulai, Johor.

And although prices of vegetables have stabilized for now, they are largely determined by the weather. “The prices may go up again when the harvest is low due to bad weather, or go down if there is excess supply,” one trader said.

Johor and Pahang are the country’s two main vegetable producers, with most of the farms located in Batu Pahat and Simpang Renggam as well as Cameron Highlands respectively.
