The report on the batch of imported eggs from India is scheduled to be released tomorrow (29 March), Director General of Animal Production and Health Dr. Hemamali Kotelawala stated.

However, although nearly  a week has passed since the arrival of the stock of eggs, the Department of 
Animal Production and Health are yet to take any steps pertaining to the release of the stock from the Colombo Port.

Speaking to the Media, Trade Minister Nalin Fernando stated that despite the stock of eggs being imported with the approval of the Department of Animal Production and Health, they are yet to provide the relevant certificate.

“Nearly two-and-a-half-months were wasted for this task. They are trying to waste more time now. We imported eggs for the public, not for my personal use”, Fernando said in this regard.

Meanwhile, the Sri Lanka State Trading (General) Corporation has stated the stock of imported eggs will be distributed from tomorrow evening.

It was previously decided that this stock of eggs will be distributed amongst bakers at a price of Rs. 35.

It has also been revealed that the eggs imported from India can be refrigerated for up to 90 days.
