The first consignment of eggs imported from India will reach Sri Lanka tomorrow (March 19), the State Trading (General) Corporation says.
The shipment will carry two million eggs in total, according to a spokesperson of the corporation.
The Sri Lankan government decided to import eggs in a bid to control the soaring prices.
However, imported eggs will not be sold for general consumption but are to be used only for bakery manufacturing.
Meanwhile, it is recommended that gloves are used when handling imported eggs in the bakery industry and eggshells are safely discarded, ensuring that the remaining eggshells are not released to the environment under any circumstances.
