Milk Powder importing companies warn that imports may be hindered if the government does not permit an increase of prices.

Importers say that they currently incur a loss of nearly 30 to 40 Million Rupees monthly and therefore expect an increase by at least 100 Rupees.

Having to pay nearly 170 Rupees as taxes per Kilogram of milk powder is said to be another reason to request for an increase.

Member of the Milkpowder Importers Association Lakshman Weerasooriya said that companies have reduced milk powder imports by nearly 40 percent.
