The National committee appointed to look into the cost of living has given its permission to manufacturers of powdered milk to increase the price of a one kilogramme packet of powdered milk by Rs. 80.

The Consumer Affairs Authority (CAA) said that accordingly a 400 gramme packet of milk will also go up by Rs.35. Although the approval was granted for the price increase the CAA said that the new prices have not been gazetted thus far and that it would meet to decide on it.

This approval was granted after taking into account the escalation in the prices of powdered milk in the world market.(Mahinda Nissanka)

    A hit on the poor man's stomach. The poor are starving and find it so difficult to give their infants a glass of milk and here goes the stab on their purse again. Great job Government, hit the small man and help the rouges get away with all the money from the citizens taxes. Shame shame shame

    Promote local production of fresh and powdered milk with incentives.

    Local cattle farmers won't sell to individuals because the big organisations buy directly from them. There should be a plan to increase small scale production.

    You can buy goat milk directly from the parliament at whole sale prices. These days that is all they can do before and after a debate they milk it for all its worth... That's an alternative to cows milk.

    There you go. Another opportunity for our weeraya Mr Sirisena to show his colours. No sooner you return from Pakistan ask who permitted the increase and order that the old price be restored. Thats the Siri style!
