Family requires only 02 kilos of sugar per month; Minister defends Sathosa


Minister Bandula Gunawardena said a family only requires 02 kilograms of sugar per month, during an inspection of wholesale trading in Colombo on Wednesday (04).

The Minister made this comment defending the decision taken by Sathosa to only issue limited stocks to consumers, adding Sathosa is a retail store promoting relief programs and is not a wholesale establishment.

The provisions of the Consumer Affairs Authority will be subject to amendments in order to address the rice price hike in the local market, said the Minister.
