No change in gazetted egg prices - Minister

Trade Minister Nalin Fernando said the prices of eggs announced through a gazette notification will not be changed.

The minister said that there was a discussion with some members of the Egg Producers Association yesterday (24) where they have proposed various prices.

He said the maximum retail price of eggs has been fixed by a gazette and therefore, it is not possible to provide eggs at various prices proposed by the members of the Association.

However, speaking to the media following the discussion, the Egg Producers Association said Trade Minister Fernando agreed to provide an opportunity to sell an egg at a maximum retail price of Rs.50.
