FAMA's Online Agrobazaar Records Sales Of RM1.7 Million

KUALA LUMPUR, Sept 10 (Bernama) -- The Federal Agriculture Marketing Authority's (FAMA) online agrobazaar programme has recorded sales of RM1.7 million so far since its launch in 2015.

FAMA senior director for domestic promotion Mohamad Mustahapa Awang said the sales were recorded from over 3,000 participating agropreneurs nationwide, including Sabah and Sarawak.

"This is the platform for the agropreneurs to market their products to consumers across the country and also for the consumers to get more information about the agroproducts available in the market," he told Bernama here today.

He said FAMA was also collaborating with the Malaysian Islamic Development Department (Jakim), Health Ministry and the Malaysian Agriculture Research and Development Institute (MARDI) to ensure that all agroproducts sold at www.agrobazaar.com.my met the stipulated quality standards.

The online agrobazaar programme was launched by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak in conjunction with the FAMA's 50th anniversary celebration on Dec 5, 2015.
