A programme is being launched to distribute poison free locally produced food throughout the country.
Minister Mahinda Yapa Abeywardena said that the programme will be launched by the National Food Promotion Board. The aim is to provide quality vegetables at reasonable prices. The vegetables are being grown using only organic fertilizer. The vegetable outlets will be setup in and around the main cities. The first lorry load of vegetables will leave the Agricultural Ministry in Battaramulla on Monday.
