The government isn’t hiding any details behind the sole Malaysian company allowed to import eggs from India, says Datuk Seri Mohamad Sabu.

The Agriculture and Food Security Minister said on Wednesday when responding to a supplementary question by Datuk Wan Saiful Wan Jan (PN-Tasek Gelugor), who asked if the government was hiding the name of the sole company importing eggs from India to Malaysia, adding that the company is J&E Advance Tech Sdn Bhd, which recently issued two letters of demand against Datuk Seri Dr Wee Ka Siong (BN-Ayer Hitam) for raising the issue of imported eggs in Parliament recently.

Earlier, Dr Wee asked whether there were any imported eggs that were rejected by the Malaysian Quarantine and Inspection Services Department (Maqis), in which Mohamad did not say whether or not any imported eggs were rejected, but said the prices of chicken and eggs can be reduced if grain and corn, which are used as chicken feed, can be produced in various states.
