Shopping demand is stronger than ever toward the end of the year, as it is believed that Tet must be full and decent, resulting in price hikes of many commodities, including cooking oil. Both consumers and businesses expressed concern when prices of essential goods and raw materials are on the rise amid hardships caused by the epidemic.

In Asia, the price of cooking oil climbed to a record high amid concerns about tight global supply. In China, prices of soybean oil and palm oil rose to all-time highs of CNY11,119 per ton. The price hike was attributed to soaring raw soybean prices and shrinking bean harvests, said analyst Kong Lingqi at Haitong Futures. "The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) said upcoming inventories will decrease from the previous year.” Vietnam is no exception. Cooking oil has also become one of most volatile commodities since the Lunar New Year 2021.

Recently, a business in Ho Chi Minh City said that all commodities have increased in prices and cooking oil has advanced most, about 30% from the same period in 2020 and is expected to go up more." According to a survey conducted by Zing in November 2021, the selling price of a 1-liter bottle of cooking oil was quoted by Neptune at VND52,000-66,000; Simply at VND56,000-67,000; Tuong An at VND47,000-53,000 and the upward trend may last till the end of the year. Repeated price hike shocks are, and will, place great pressure on consumer spending, especially when production and business are being restored after prolonged social distancing.

Adjusting selling prices or cutting promotions as a result of this pressure is very difficult because contracts usually have predetermined prices. For that reason, choosing suppliers again is essential to maintain operations. AFO Company, a member of Sao Mai Group, is an ideal suggestion if businesses are looking for partners to supply large quantities of well-priced cooking oil, shortening and margarine.

Ranee to keep price stable
