In a sigh of relief for inflation-hit Pakistan, Utility Stores Corporation (USC) announced cut prices of basic commodities including cooking oil and ghee.

As Ramadan approaches, governments worldwide often decrease food prices, recognizing the increased demand during this period when families gather for special meals and fasting occurs throughout the day. To meet this demand, food giants and markets commonly offer discounts and promotions on basic food items.

Amidst record-high food prices in Pakistan, the Utility Stores Corporation has introduced a 17 percent discount on various brands of cooking oil, ghee, tea, and detergents.
