Minister: Fast food prices not controlled

Author:   |    Publish date:

PUTRAJAYA, Jan 7 — The government cannot dictate prices at fast food chains as these are not legally controlled, said Domestic Trade and Consumer Affairs Minister Datuk Seri Saifuddin Nasution Ismail.

Responding to questions about the investigations on KFC and McDonald’s over consumer complaints, he said his ministry was still engaging with the respective franchise owners.

“We will ask them to give a further explanation first. However, I cannot call them and simply ask them to lower their prices. I don’t think that is the role of the government.

He acknowledged that his ministry was tasked with protecting consumer interests but added that this must also be balanced with the needs of businesses and economic growth.

Saifuddin’s ministry launched investigations against KFC and McDonald’s after consumers complained of price increases at both chains.

KFC later courted controversy by releasing a statement that suggested its recent price increases were related to the Sales and Services Tax (SST).
