Liquor, beer containers to have sticker


Commissioner of Excise, Law Enforcement and Media Spokesman Kapila Kumarasinghe yesterday (26) said that steps have been taken to paste stickers on liquor bottles, beer cans and bottles to detect the original from the duplicate in the market.

Commissioner Kumarasinghe added that this plan is to be implemented beginning January 2023.

He said that a special app is to be introduced and when using it the customers will be able to know the manufacturer, date of manufacture as well as the expiry date when they scan the stickers pasted on the liquor bottles, beer bottles and cans.

The app can be downloaded to mobile phones and once downloaded the customers will be able to know whether the product is genuine or duplicate, Commissioner Kumarasinghe added.
