Recently Jaya Grocer supermarket was charged at the Shah Alam court for selling “ladies fingers” or okra with a high profit margin.
According to sources, they were suppose to charge RM3.10 per kilo instead of a whopping RM9.70 per kilo. That’s RM6.60 profit for just selling ladies fingers.
For those of you Malaysians who would like to try the RM9.70 per kilo ladies fingers, you can head over to the Jaya Grocer branch located at Bangi Gateway Shopping Complex in Bandar Baru Bangi. However, the director of the company plead not guilty for the charges.
The supermarket was charged under the Price Control and Anti-Profiteering Act.
