The provision of Coconut to consumers at low prices for the festive season will continue.

A programme has been unveiled to provide coconuts at the rate of 30 rupees per nut for the festive season under the mediation of the Coconut Development Ministry. Under this programme, Coconut will be sold to the people in Colombo and the suburbs via the Self- Employed Federation. About 100 thousand coconuts were issued at the Coconut Development Board in Battaramulla today. Accordingly, mobile vehicles have been deployed to carry out sales in the Nugegoda, Borella, Maradana, Pettah, Grandpass and Kompannaveediya areas. The consumers displayed a keen interest in purchasing coconuts at reduced rates. Even long queues were witnessed near the mobile vehicles.
