Wheat flour imports from China
The Government will import 5,000 MT of wheat flour initially from China stipulating the lowest selling price at Rs.46 per kilo to be distributed through the Sathosa and Cooperatives to provide relief to consumers in spite of the price hike by the Prima Ceylon Ltd.

A spokesman for the Trade, Marketing Development, Co-operatives and Consumer Services told the Daily News that the habitual wheat flour consumers especially the urban lower income group and the estate workers have been badly affected with this unfair price increase.

The company has revised the selling price of wheat flour recently up to Rs.60.00 per kilo and the retail selling price has also been increased to Rs.66 per kilo.

He said that the Government expects to increase the import of wheat flour upto 20,000 MT per month subsequently at US$ 378 per MT from the M/S China Shandong International Economic and Technical Cooperation Ltd under the direct supervision of Minister Bandula Gunawardena.

This was a result of discussions held by the Minister and his delegation with the Chinese suppliers to procure essential food items at competitive prices on his recent visit to China.

“It is very essential to import this quantity of wheat flour to arrest the increased selling prices of wheat flour by the company,” he said. It is intended to sell the wheat flor at the lowest selling prices with a minimum profit margin to control the high selling prices prevailing in the open market.
