Soybean oil price may go up as Bangladesh Tariff Commission (BTC) is considering proposal for hiking edible oil price due to higher production costs.
Bangladesh Vegetable Oil Refiners and Banaspati Manufacturers Association (BVORBMA), the association of owners of edible oil refining and marketing companies, has submitted a proposal to raise soybean oil price by Tk 15 per litre, reports UNB.
The refiners submitted a letter last Tuesday to Commerce Secretary Tapan Kanti Ghosh, urging the government to readjust the prices by Sunday. The refiners made the proposal a month after lowering soybean oil price by Tk 14 a litre.
Chief Executive of BVORBMA, Nurul Islam Molla, told UNB, the situation was described to the commerce secretary.
