Thai Jasmine rice store price to rise

The retail price of Jasmine rice will go up by at least THB10 (USD0.33) per five-kilogramme pack after the Songkran holiday, Thai Rice Packers Association president Somkiat Makcayathorn said on Friday.

Somkiat said the price had to increase because of higher costs of raw materials and fuel along with the government’s plan to increase the daily minimum wage to THB300.
