KUALA LUMPUR 10 Nov – Products at Kedai Rakyat 1Malaysia (KR1M) outlets are cheaper compared with similar branded products available in the market, said Domestic Trade, Cooperatives and Consumerism Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob yesterday.
He said the government had kept to its promise in setting up these outlets to ease the people’s burden and dismissed allegations by the opposition that its products cost more.
He accused DAP national publicity chief Tony Pua of lying when he presented a list comparing the prices of 23 products at KR1M with those sold at the Carrefour hypermarket.
Ismail, who showed samples of the products used by Pua, said the comparison was unfair as the hypermarket has its house brand.
“When making comparison, make sure to compare an apple with an apple.
“You can’t compare KR1M prices to Carrefour’s house brands because our pricing benchmark is based on that of branded products.
“Compare products of similar quality and content. You can’t compare a package of Ceylon tea with black tea and say the Ceylon tea is more expensive.”
To date, there are 83 KR1M outlets nationwide with another 25 more outlets to be set up by year-end. Regular sundry shops and even petrol stations have also started stocking KR1M products.
Ismail said hypermarkets were encouraged to sell their products at a lower price.
Mydin Mohamed Holdings Bhd managing director Datuk Ameer Ali Mydin, who was present, said Carrefour has two house brands — the Carrefour brand, which was priced lower and whose quality was comparable with that of branded products, and Carrefour Big Saver, which was even cheaper but at a slightly lower quality.
Ameer gave a demonstration on the quality of some of the products on display to prove that the quality of KR1M products was on a par with some of the more expensive, well-known brands.
“KR1M sells quality products at lower prices. It is not a dumping ground for products of a lesser quality as alleged by certain quarters.”
Ameer also questioned Pua’s shopping.
He cited the 400g Ramly frozen minced beef which cost RM5.29 per packet, which Phua had compared with the one sold at KR1M, which cost RM4.89.
