Find out and compare grocery price in all major hypermarkets & supermarkets

The Ministry of Domestic Trade and Consumer Affairs (MDTCA, a.k.a. Kementerian Perdagangan Dalam Negeri Dan Hal Ehwal Pengguna - KPDNHEP) has setup a Price Watch section in their website and list out the grocery price in all major hypermarkets and supermarkets including Carrefour, Giant, Jusco, Mydin, Tesco, The Store, etc.

The price lists are made according to state. You might be surprised to find out how much different can the highest and lowest price of the same item among them, and different hypermarket under the same group might have different price for the same item in different area.

Here are the grocery price list downloadable from their website:

Hi edge2002

Yes, they are suppose to update it from time to time.

You can go to their website to download the files, which I find not so convenience because need to go through too many steps to reach the file.

You can also download from here, as I've made the download very straightforward.

Good news - they change the file everyday.

Bad news - the file name is not consistent. So the link from here is broken.

Anyhow, I've fixed that. Should be working now.

Go to price.savershub.com to find prices that are updated daily!

We are still inputting more data, so, not all items can be found.

Only grocery items that can be distinguished (i.e. Milo, Nescafe, milk etc) in Peninsular Malaysia only.
