NFPB sales outlets streamlined


National Food Promotion Board (NFPB) sales outlets have been streamlined islandwide, enabling consumers to purchase essentials at affordable prices.

Agriculture Minister Mahinda Amaraweera said steps have been taken by the Paddy Marketing Board (PMB) to purchase paddy from farmers during the ongoing Yala Season and the upcoming Maha Season.

He said the Government has launched a programme to provide sufficient quantities of rice to consumers islandwide.

Amaraweera said this during the opening of a new NFPB sales outlet in Dehiwala yesterday (6).
