Sugar shortage emerging
By IZATUN SHARI
PETALING JAYA: There has been shortage of sugar supply at small sundry and grocery shops in the outskirts of Selangor the past two weeks.
Consumers in Sekinchan, Tanjong Karang and Kuala Selangor were saying that retailers are claiming that they could not get the commodity.
Rahim Md Sherif, 19, of Tanjong Karang went from one shop to another looking for sugar but to no avail.
He had to call his sibling, who lived in Klang and Kuala Lumpur, to buy small packs of sugar.
Another complainant, who declined to be named, said it was difficult to cook and even make drinks for her schoolgoing children as she had been out of sugar for the past few days.
