Bakeries face margarine problem due to palm oil ban

Bakery owners warn that the entire bakery production of the country could collapse due to the decision to ban palm oil imports.

They point out that margarine, an essential ingredient in bakery products, is made using palm oil.

Therefore, this could lead to a host of production issues, they add.

Therefore, we strongly oppose this decision taken by the government, Mr. N.K. Jayawardena, chairman of the All Ceylon Bakery Owners Association.
