Who actually manages our sugar supply? The government? The suppliers (Robert Kwok and co.)?
From the law of supply and demand, a temporary shortage is caused either by an increase in demand or a decrease in supply.
Demand is pretty much stiff. There shouldn’t be much changes to that. It’s not like suddenly Malaysians are healthily conscious of diabetic lifestyle and subsequently abandoning sugar. So there’s something with the supplied quantity, subsidy, and the price ceiling that we don’t know much about.
