Pelawatta slammed for price increase!

The Public has been increasingly dissatisfied with the price increase of locally produced Pelawatta milk powder after price controls were removed.

Pelawatta Dairy too, had followed the steps of imported milk powder distributors by increasing the milk powder products. The company has increased the price of a 400g milk packet by Rs. 80 to Rs. 460/=.

Comments made on the Facebook page of Pelawatta Dairy reflects the public displeasure.
