The Commerce Ministry will maintain product prices for as long as possible to prevent scarcity, Commerce Minister Jurin Laksanawisit said on Tuesday.

He made the remark after the ministry slammed the brakes on manufacturers planning to to raise the price of powdered and ready-to-drink milk due to rising production costs.

"If there is a shortage of supply, consumers would prefer to pay more than not have the product at all," he said.

He added that the ministry will consider manufacturers' requests case by case. He admitted that production costs had risen sharply due to rising fuel and electricity prices.
