Asela Sampath, the Chairman of the All-Island Canteen Owners’ Association, announced today that the price of a cup of milk tea will be reduced starting tomorrow, March 27. The move comes in response to the recent revision of the price of a packet of milk powder.
During a press briefing held in Colombo on March 26, Mr. Sampath emphasized that the price of a cup of milk tea, which previously cost Rs. 100, will now be reduced by Rs. 10 and now sold at Rs.90. This is expected to provide relief to consumers who have been burdened by the high cost of living.
In related news, milk powder importers have recently announced that they will be lowering the price of their products as well. One kilogram of imported milk powder will now cost Rs. 200 less, while the price of a 400 grams packet of milk powder will be reduced by Rs. 80, starting tomorrow.
These price reductions are expected to benefit consumers across Sri Lanka, as they will help to lower the cost of some of the most commonly consumed food and beverage items.
