10 million imported eggs set for market release
Colombo (LNW): The Sri Lanka State Trading (General) Corporation has initiated the release of 10 million imported eggs to the market starting today (18).
Approved by the Department of Animal Production and Health (DAPH), these eggs will be distributed to Lanka SATHOSA, ensuring an adequate supply for the public during the festive season.
An additional 15 million imported eggs are anticipated to arrive soon, undergoing quality inspections before distribution through SATHOSA outlets and selected supermarkets.
This move follows recent price increases by local egg producers, prompting the government to resume egg imports from India to stabilise prices and prevent consumer inconvenience.
