Signs of milk powder shortage in February

There could be a shortage of milk power from the first week of February, according to the Milk Powder Importers Association.

They claim that this situation has arisen as the Consumer Affairs Authority has failed to reduce the Rs. 170 tax imposed per kilogram of imported milk powder.

It is said that as the CAA had not responded to their appeal to reduce the tax on imported milk powder, the import of milk powder had been reduced by last week.

The milk powder importers warned that by next week the import of milk powder would be stopped completely.
