Cheaper Rangoon kekulu soon

The Government has decided to release a kilo of Rangoon kekulu rice imported from Myanmar at a concessionary rate of Rs.50 to the private sector to provide relief to consumers.

Addressing a press-briefing held yesterday in Colombo, Trade, Marketing Development and Co-operatives and Consumer Services Minister Bandula Gunawardhana said that the Rangoon Kekulu rice will be released as a quantity of 50kg through the Food Commissioner’s Department in Narahenpita.

“Now we release Rangoon Kekulu at a concessionary rate of Rs.59 to consumers through Co-operatives, Sathosa branches and Welfare Societies of the State organizations.”

This opportunity would vastly benefit to the traders in the private sector to sell Rangoon kekulu to consumers by keeping small profit margin. The Minister said that the country was not badly affected to the rice shortage under the world food crisis due to bumper harvest of Yala season and maintaining a buffer rice stock.
