- +

Mall food-court operators have agreed to continue capping the prices of 10 a la carte items for another year despite the cooking gas price being set to rise by 50 satang a month from June. 

Santichai Santawanpas, deputy director-general of the Internal Trade Department, said all operators at a meeting yesterday agreed to cooperate with a Commerce Ministry request to help maintain the suggested ceiling price of 20-35 baht for 10 a la carte items including khao man kai (chicken and rice), khao rat kaeng (curry rice), pork noodles and khao kha mu (stewed pork with rice).
