Storage in Wattala with 4,096MT of sugar sealed

A storage facility in Kerawalapitiya, Wattala, that was not registered with the Consumer Affairs Authority, that contained 4,096MT of sugar has been sealed.

Information uncovered revealed that the sugar was stored at the facility over several months.

The Ministry of Trade said the importer concealed the stock of sugar with the objective of creating an artificial shortage in the market and in order to gain undue profits by selling the commodity to consumers at a higher price.
