Local dairy companies stated that the government should take steps to increase the price of local milk powder in parallel with the increase in the price of imported milk powder.

Lasantha Wickramasinghe, Chairman of Milco, said that it is cheaper for consumers to use liquid milk instead of milk powder to make milk tea.

He also points out that the use of liquid milk is a solution to the problems that have arisen due to the shortage of milk powder.

There is still a shortage of milk powder in the market and consumers say that they are inconvenienced by the increase in the price of milk powder in the current situation in the country.
