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.
However, Pelwatta Dairy Chairman - Ariyasheeli Wickremanayake has previously appeared before media from time to time and stated that his company is capable of meeting the complete local demand for milk powder, liquid milk, cheese, butter and other dairy products.
Mr. Wickremanayake is also the Chairman of the Mawbima Lanka Foundation established for local products and companies.
