Malta 320ml

Recently I was shopping for my usual nightcap drink: Malta 320ml. I went to a hypermarket for my supplies. I was astounded to discover some discrepancies in pricing. Perhaps it was the administrative staff fault for not having discovered this error. In any case they are doing the manufacturers a disservice.

Check it out.

Over here we see that a can of Malta, 320ml, is RM1.67. This is the price per can. For six cans, only RM10.02.

Here we see that a pack of six cans of Malta, same manufacturer, costs RM11.99. The size of the cans are same: 320ml. This works out to nearly RM2.00 per can!!

I wonder where the extra cost is coming from? Possibly packaging?
