All Ceylon Canteen Owners Association has decided to refrain from selling any products with the ‘Halaal’ logo with effect from April 01.

The association’s national organizer Asela Sampath stated that canteen owners faced various difficulties in recent times due to the Halaal certificate.

He stated that a majority of Sinhalese and Tamil customers rejected the products with Halaal certificate resulting in a drop in revenue of canteens.

All Ceylon Canteen Owners Association states that although canteen owners spend large sums on their canteens the income they generate has drastically reduced.
