Malaysia: In places, vegetables cost 10% more due to wet season

The rainy weather in the last couple of weeks has resulted in a slight increase in vegetable prices in parts of Malaysia. Farmers stated the prices of some vegetables have gone up by 10%, although they believed the rise is temporary. They also warned that prices could still rise if the wet season continues.

Cheng Nan Hong, deputy president of the Cameron Highlands Chinese Farmers Association, said the rain will have an impact on vegetables grown outdoors, such as spring onion, coriander and cabbage: “When the harvest decreases but demand is high, prices will go up naturally.”
