Price of food items at restaurants to increase by 10%


The All Island Canteen Owners Association has decided to increase the price of a rice packet and all other food items 10 per cent.

President of the Association Asela Sampath said the decision was taken due to the hike in fuel prices announced earlier today.

He said that if the prices of food items are not revised, restaurants that are currently 60% closed will have to close completely due to the rising price of essentials.
