All-Island Canteen Owners Association states that the price of a lunch packet will be increased by Rs.10 from today (Dec. 19).  The organizer of the Association said that the decision has been taken following the increase in rice prices. He stressed that that the Government should take immediate measures to control the price of rice

“The decision was not to gain profit. But the prices of rice are being increased day by day,” he said.

He further stated that rice is being selling at various prices in the market and even in the Sathosa. The average price for a vegetable food packet is Rs. 100 and it will be increased to Rs. 110, a fish food packet will increased from Rs. 130 to Rs. 140 and a chicken food packet from Rs. 160 to Rs. 170.

He also stated that the government has failed to control the price for rice. “There was no shortage of the rice at the moment in the country. However, some businessmen are hiding the rice to sell for animal food. We challenge the Consumer Affairs Authority, STF or any other institution to conduct an island wide raid to find hidden rice being stored. ” he said.
