BANGKOK, 12th February 2017 (NNT) – The Commerce Ministry has assured the public that the cooking gas price hike will not result in higher prices of ready-to-eat meals.
Somsak Kiatchailak, the deputy director-general of the Internal Trade Department, said the increase in the price of liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) for cooking won’t affect consumers as prices of food products and ready-to-eat meals will remain unchanged. The deputy director-general then urged consumers to lodge a complaint with the department or call hotline 1569 should they come across any restaurants or food vendors trying to take advantage of the situation.
