The Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs is issuing an additional 20% discount coupon for agricultural and livestock products to alleviate the burden on consumers.
Minister of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs Jeong Hwang-geun said this after visiting the Yangjae branch of Hanaro Mart in Seoul today (30th) and checking the price trend.
Discount coupons can be used up to 10,000 won per person in online and offline distribution channels, and discounts of up to 30% are available in traditional markets.
Previously, the government executed 29.3 billion won of this year’s discount coupon support until the 25th, and the supplementary budget including 39 billion won support for additional issuance passed the National Assembly yesterday (29th).
In addition, the government plans to stockpile agricultural products that fluctuate in price in advance, such as 20,000 tons of onions and 6,000 tons each of cabbage and garlic, and supply them to the market in case of shortage.
