A wholesale supplier of food items, Standard and Origin Pvt. Ltd, on Monday, commenced a sale in preparation for the month of Ramadan.
Until the sale concludes on June 15, several goods such as chicken, paratha and canned fruits sold from the company's outlet in the capital will be available at discounted prices.
"The aim of this promotion is to provide goods at a fixed price for the entire month of Ramadan", Shop Manager at Standard and Origin Yoosuf Hussain said.
During the promotion, a case of 10 chicken weighing 1000 grams will cost MVR 296, while a case of 10 chicken weighing 800 grams will be sold for MVR 237.44.
A 400-gram paratha case will be priced at MVR 650 and a case of cooking oil containing one-litre bottles of cooking oil will cost MVR 225. However, cases of sunflower oil will be priced higher at MVR 280.

All aforementioned prices are inclusive of the Goods and Services Tax (GST).
The discounts offered by Standard and Origin provide a convenient opportunity for those who wish to purchase food items in bulk for Ramadan.
Although Standard and Origin Pvt Ltd has previously hosted special offers coinciding with Ramadan, the company revealed that this year's prices are lower compared to their prior promotions.
