Plans are underway to award quality certificates for food and drinks produced in Sri Lanka.
The plan is to be implemented by the Sri Lanka Standards Bureau. It has drawn its attention to implementing this plan as many such food and drinks had not been awarded quality certificates and the sale of such food in addition to those which had expired had caused damage to life and created many problems. Accordingly, the Sri Lanka Standards Bureau is to award quality certificates for products such as cakes, biscuits, soft drinks and chocolates. The Programme is due to be implemented by the Ministry of Technology and Research.
