WP Governor opens organic supermarket, restaurant


Governor of the Western Province, former Air Force Commander, Marshal of the Air Force Roshan Gunathilaka inaugurated the first organic supermarket and restaurant chain on 22 August. This was in keeping with a concept mooted by  Rajitha Hapuarachchi, Chairman of the Western Province Agricultural Services Authority.

A network of organic supermarkets and restaurants in the Western Province will only sell local rice, vegetables, fruit and other produce grown with organic fertiliser. In addition, local, Indian, and Chinese food and beverages made without artificial sweeteners could also be purchased at this organic market.
