SHAH ALAM, Jan 16 — Selangor Agriculture Development Corporation (PKPS) has introduced the Selangor Agro Market Lorry programme to make it easier for people to get fresh produce during the movement control order (MCO) period.
PKPS Marketing Institution Development Top Senior Manager Siti Noor Lianna Misli said the grocery-on-wheels concept lorry will travel to selected locations in all district according to schedule every day except on Monday from 8am to 1pm.
“We have taken the initiative to visit residential areas so that the people can get wet and dry goods at lower prices than the market as our supplies are brought directly from farmers registered under PKPS.
“This month, the lorry will be in Shah Alam, it is scheduled to go to Gombak and Ampang next month. We will announce the location via PKPS Facebook page,” said Siti Noor Lianna at Medan Selera Seksyen 7 here yesterday.
She added that PKPS also has long-term plans to develop an entrepreneurship programme for individuals who own suitable lorry to conduct a similar service.
