Minister Patali Champika Ranawaka yesterday said his ministry and the All Ceylon Buddhist Congress are on the process of introducing a new food quality certificate for non-alcoholic foods and beverages in Sri Lanka.

 “We are discussing this with the Sri Lanka Standards (SLS) institution to introduce the quality certificate. And the certification system won’t be a controversial since we can find non-vegetarian and non-alcoholic consumers in all communities in the country,” he said.

    What a serious bunch of jokers. The Thambi's have a 'food standard certification authority', so they also want one. Bunch of fools.

    Ann Sunday, 24 February 2013 03:44 AM

    This is why I prefer to make stuff at home(esp baked goods and sweets), from scratch... at least I know what goes into them.

    Sammy Saturday, 23 February 2013 07:17 AM

    What has ACBC got to do with quality certificates for food items. Is this for countering halal certification? Playing "pandu" with religion!

    lee Saturday, 23 February 2013 07:21 AM

    another copycat. they got nothing on their own, new year, gods, holy cow, customs, etc all copied from Hindus.

    Saman Saturday, 23 February 2013 07:23 AM

    you idiot, 1st teach your wife how to dress before you start to issue certificates.

    kumar Sunday, 24 February 2013 03:55 AM

    oh....so he can make money issuing this certification just like the halal certification. Champaka made money by bringing environment tax on cell phone calls when he was the minister of environment. Fuel surcharge tax when he was the minister of electricity. Now this... very innovative...good luck

    Great. Kindly also include REFINED wheat/rice flour and white sugar as food items that have to be certified and/or licensed.

    So its again back to Hallal. What a bunch of idiots, the practice and idea is same only the name changes. There is absolutely nothing wrong with Hallal. Hallal means 'approved or allowed'.
    This man champika makes me vomit.

    Mohamed Monday, 25 February 2013 12:00 AM

    Hon Chamipka, its a good move, vegitarian certification is vey good, because majority of indian tourists are vegitarians, definitely there would be a good demand for it . I would like to bting to kind notice, please dont be a guy to arouse hatred among communities, and become popular of it, majority srilankans now looking for ethnicity harmony in srilanka PLEASE THINK AS A LOVING SRILANKAN, NOT A COMMUNAL POLITICIAN via DM Android App

    ghafa Saturday, 23 February 2013 09:06 AM

    This too a kind of HALAL certification.

    wise Monday, 25 February 2013 02:52 AM

    all Srilankans abroad feel shy to face other nationalities in those countries,due to a bunch of racists spoiling the image of Srilanka in the world map.

    muhammad Saturday, 23 February 2013 09:15 AM

    Interesting indeed, we as Sri Lankans need to find a common ground. If something like an ice cream or chocolate is certified vegeterian, then no body will have any issue. Brilliant

    hanas Saturday, 23 February 2013 12:00 AM

    good move we can buy certain products with vegetarian certificate via DM Android App

    sobers Saturday, 23 February 2013 09:18 AM

    Worst food are Kottu,fried rice,Biriyani,Pastries, if properly tested they are all adulterated with unwanted chemicals,coloured dye,unauthorised ingredients, the culprits are the PHI's as they are corrupted and more the laws are introduced more "SOMETHING" for them.

    mohamed Monday, 25 February 2013 08:52 AM

    This is what the AJU is doing, so you want to give it to SLS, may be some ............can make a living,it is a good move

    seyad lankaputra Saturday, 23 February 2013 09:42 AM

    Champika Mahattayo!!! yes, it is good move. you guys are very innovative though as a consumer i have concern over your standards over conflicting non-vegetarian and non-alcholic foods.. this is right way to do things first by self, rather than pointing out at others. good luck!!!

    ali Saturday, 23 February 2013 09:43 AM

    ACBC and food quality??????? A new ministry? Don't they have better things to do like ensure the followers are educated about the five precepts, and to avoid alcohol, murder, respect each other and avoid stealing etc.,?????

    Saliya Wickremasuriya Saturday, 23 February 2013 12:00 AM

    It's great. I'm a Catholic vegetarian. What the minister is going to do is commendable. The western world, especially America is going on this line. It's a different story that I don't approve a lot of things the minister does. via DM Android App

    me Saturday, 23 February 2013 12:00 AM

    in a way it has sense. coz few of us know about ingredients in processed foods. eg cheese slices contain gelatin made with cows gelatin to make it smooth. chocolates contain animals fat. and alcohols are used as preservatives etc via DM Android App
