Malaysian Restaurant Boss Fined S$10k For Selling Overpriced Milo

A Malaysian restaurant boss was fined RM30,000 (S$9,964) or 6 months’ jail by Kota Kinabalu’s Sessions Court or selling Milo Ais at an “unreasonable” price.

Domestic Trade and Consumer Affairs Ministry state deputy director V. Ravichandran, during a press conference, said businessman Shihan Mohd Salim, who owns Anak Mami The Restaurant 3, charged RM3.20 (S$1.06) for a cup of Milo Ais, leading a customer to lodge a complaint on the excessive price on March 7, 2016.

He added that the ministry hoped businessmen would take the case as a lesson not to profiteer from marking up their food prices unreasonably.

Shihan was charged under Section 21(5) of the Price Control and Anti-Profiteering Act 2011 for failure to provide full details and receipts between Jan 2015 and March 2016 for beverages as required under Section 21(2) of the Act.

“I also would like to advise consumers to report to our ministry if there are similar cases in future,” he said.
